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.”

What You Can Do:

Here is a list of steps you can take to help prevent respiratory illness, including the coronavirus, during this flu season:

  • It’s the CDC’s recommendation that Americans wear non-surgical face masks in public — especially in places "where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain."
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • A mask can be effective if you are ill and can prevent the spread of your illness.
  • Travelers are asked to review any Travel Advisories and Alerts for their destination(s) here.
