Mayor Michael Victorino announced today that, beginning Monday, Feb. 21, proof of vaccination or testing will no longer be required for indoor service at restaurants, bars and gyms. Maui County’s indoor mask requirement must be lifted by the governor.
“With the rapid decline of new COVID-19 cases and related hospitalizations, we can safely eliminate the proof-of-vaccination requirement for bars, restaurants and gyms,” Mayor Victorino said. “We successfully avoided overloading our health-care capacity, so many thanks to the community and especially the business operators who have struggled through this entire pandemic. Mahalo for your cooperation.”
“This rule change, and more to come, doesn’t mean we can throw caution to the wind. We advise continuing to wear face masks while indoors in public spaces and to maintain physical distancing when in groups of people from outside of your household. COVID-19 is still circulating out there.”
