  • Stay in your unit if you are feeling ill and avoid contact with others

The disinfectant wipes we use at our center have a specific compound called benzalkonium chloride that the CDC has proved effective against viruses including covid-19. Though they do not contain alcohol, the chloride kills the virus and also leaves a thin barrier for continued protection after application. Please use these wipes before and after each use of equipment.

Out-of-state visitors that arrive in Maui County must complete a 14-day mandatory quarantine at a hotel or motel prior to rental of a condominium, Bed and Breakfast Home or Short-Term Rental Home.

These rules remain in effect until July 31, 2020 unless they are terminated at an earlier date or extended to a later date. Violation of this rule is punishable as a misdemeanor, with fines of up to $5,000, up to a year in jail, or both. This applies to visitors and hosts who do not follow quarantine requirements.
