Mayor Victorino announces broad reopening of businesses and services on June 1st in Maui County
“The people of Maui County have done a tremendous job in reducing the number of COVID-19 cases and taking care of one another,” Mayor Victorino said. “With only a handful of new cases over the past 30 days and continued support from our healthcare workers, I believe we are in a position to allow our local businesses to reopen under health and safety guidelines.
“Businesses should not feel pressured to reopen by June 1, though, and I strongly encourage all of them to take added precautions to prevent any spread of the virus.”
