BOSTON – U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) continued effort to combat the spread of COVID-19 via travel across our borders by reminding travelers that per the “Notification of Temporary Travel Restriction between the United States and Canada,” routine small boat travel for pleasure is deemed non-essential. Additionally, we are assisting Health and Human Services in implementing their authority under Title 42, U. S. Code 265 in accordance with existing Title 8 authority and prohibiting the entry of certain persons into the United States. Therefore, the Boston Field Office reminds the public of the continued temporary closure of small boating locations and reminds travelers that small boating is recreational in nature and not considered essential travel.
As a result, ROAM kiosks throughout Maine and Vermont remain closed to travelers, until further notice. A list of CBP small vessel reporting locations in Vermont and coastal New England can be found here.
