The State of Hawaii's indoor mask mandate expired on March 25th, 2022. Wearing a mask is optional in most settings, except where required by federal law. Federal regulations requiring face coverings at the airport and Kauai bus/shuttle have been eliminated but remain under Federal review and may be reinstated.

Kauai Ends Restrictions on Social Gatherings

Mayor Derek S. K. Kawakami repealed the County's last emergency rule for the COVID-19 on March 1, 2022. 

Previously, Emergency Rule 28 limited social gatherings and required events over gathering limits to ensure attendees were either fully vaccinated or showed proof of a negative COVID test. While the protocol is no longer mandatory, large event organizers are highly encouraged to promote these best practices as part of their business operations.
