Travel restrictions, New Hampshire, Vermont, or Maine from RI?

Are there any restriction going from Rhode Island to Vermont, New Hampshire or Maine for a day trip? Would we have to quarrantine? Vermont seems like you would if youre coming from a place with over 400 cases per million, Maine seems like they require 2 week quarantine as well, (although someone told me their hotel said there is no quarrantine), and New Hampshire isn't clear. They say if youre coming for an extended period of time, you have to quarantine for 2 weeks. But they don't specify if day trippers have to. Anuome know? Also, interested in national and state parks and other scenic areas- are they open now to out of staters?

Yes, VT has a complicated system of quarantine and non-quarantine counties. Southern RI Washington County is non-quarantine according to the recent info on cases/million, although in the past two weeks the status of some counties has changed.

Maine imposes a quarantine except for residents of ME, VT and NH. There is a lot of concern about the restrictions from hotel owners.

I find the information on NH confusing. There is a quarantine requirement for people booking rental units but I think day trips for people coming from out of state are OK
Maybe someone else can clarify? Sometimes it is hard to find anything explicit confirming a negative, i.e. no quarantine.

Maine is the state most likely to enforce more and more restrictions as the summer moves along, whether the lodging industry likes it or not. "Wishful thinking" is no way to deal with a pandemic......https://covid19.healthdata.org/united-states-of-america/maine

It looks like NH would like out of state visitors to stay home. https://www.covidguidance.nh.gov/out-state-visitors But, as VT said, it's confusing. If you are day tripping you probably won't have a problem. A week ago I was at a Best Buy in Nashua NH on the state border and I was probably one of the few cars in the parking lot with NH plates. Everyone seemed to be wearing masks and Best Buy was doing curbside pickups and appointments only. A guide to what's open is here https://www.visitnh.gov/covid19/reopening
There was a problem in the beginning of the shutdown of too many people at the most popular hiking trails especially in the mountains. There are many trails in other places with very few visitors so pick something that looks out of the way. Our daughter-in-law has been taking the kids hiking and according to their photos, there hasn't been anyone else around. You'll probably have to do some research to find restaurants that are open, at least for take-out near where you want to go. It's easiest if you have a phone number to call in your order.

Thanks, dfrost. For some reason that explanation was not showing up when I searched. Saying you have to quarantine if going to the state for an "extended period" is awfully vague but certainly seems to allow for day trips.
