COVID-19 Policies

Hurray! The Hutchinson Center is open for business and operating at full capacity.

We are delighted to return to serving our community by providing conference space, classes, and programming (both in-person and online).

Planning on visiting or renting space at the Hutchinson Center? Wonderful! We can’t wait to see you!

Current University of Maine Policy

In general, face coverings are optional and welcomed across the University of Maine System, indoors and outdoors, for all persons – students, staff, faculty and visitors – regardless of vaccination status.

However, there are important exceptions when face coverings are or may still be required. Visitors are asked always to have an appropriate face covering available and to be prepared to wear it if required or requested to do so when at a University.

  • For indoor events of more than 75 persons, face coverings are required unless proof of vaccination or a negative test is required as a condition of entrance, in which case face coverings can be optional as determined by the organizing authority. 
  • For indoor events of 75 or fewer persons, face coverings are optional.
