Schoodic Institute is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our staff and guests.  At this time, masking indoors is now optional for guests and staff.

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are closely adhering to the guidance and best practices set by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Maine CDC. Please visit https://www.maine.gov/covid19/ for the latest guidance and Acadia National Park’s website for information on park status and services.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms we ask that you postpone your visit to Schoodic Institute until you are well.

For your comfort and convenience we have placed hand sanitizing dispensers in various high-traffic areas throughout campus.

At our dining hall, Schooner Commons, we have implemented some new processes and procedures, including suspending use of our salad bar, preparing silverware and napkin sets, and switching to single-use containers for all condiments. Our staff are ServSafe certified and always follow best practices when preparing and serving food.

Information and guidelines are continually changing. The best sources of information are the state website and national park website. Please check the guidance and we can further answer questions about safely staying and working at Schoodic.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
