THE PLEDGE TO PROTECT ME OFFERS ONLINE VERSION OF THE CERTIFICATE OF COMPLIANCE

The Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) has launched the Pledge to Protect ME, a digital version of the Certificate of Compliance currently required for guests staying at Maine lodging properties.

A link to this new online Certificate of Compliance option is now available on the VisitMaine.com Travel With Care page.

The Pledge to Protect ME will allow visitors to easily fill out the Certificate of Compliance form online and receive a confirmation via email for their next visit to Maine.  Visitors will also have the option to go one step further before and during their travels to Maine and enroll in the GetWell Loop, a proactive tool to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms.

Lodging establishments may choose to provide a link to the online Pledge to Protect ME (https://www.pledgeport.app/) within their reservation confirmation email messaging instead of the .pdf form of the Certificate of Compliance currently provided.  A FAQ with more details for lodging reservation and front desk staff is posted at MOTPartners.com.

Lodging establishments that wish to have their reservation email auto-filled into the Pledge to Protect ME form please contact Chiara Moriconi at Chiara.Moriconi@maine.gov.
