We wanted to let our valued association and community members know that we continue to monitor COVID-19 rules, regulations and updates.
Destination Maui, Inc. remains in compliance with all State and County rulings related to COVID-19. The quarantine for persons traveling inter-island was lifted June 16, 2020, on very short notice. That means many of our condominium associations that allow short-term rentals are looking into the process to welcome inter-island travelers. Each property has their own needs, schedule and procedures, and short-term owners are encourage to check with their individual Association’ manager for direction. Please note that not all common spaces, such as pool areas, are open at all properties.
It’s important to note that all vacationers traveling from out of state are still subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine, and this quarantine must be completed at a hotel or motel, or residence for returning residents and family. The Governor recently announced the 14-day quarantine would be lifted for transpacific travelers August 1, 2020 for those with a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of flight, but we are awaiting more details on how that will be implemented and other safety measures.
Mahalo for your continued support and stay well,
Destination Maui, Inc
