Gov. David Ige announced that the statewide indoor mask requirement will end at the same time as the remaining COVID-19 emergency rules on March 25.

“Together, we have reduced COVID-19 in Hawaii to the point where most of us will be safe without masks indoors,” Ige said Tuesday. “Right now, hospitalizations are trending down. Case counts are falling. We are better at treating people who are infected. Booster shots are saving lives. And the CDC has rated the state’s COVID-19 community level as ‘low.’

“However, the state will be ready to reinstitute the mask policy if COVID case numbers surge.”

State health officials said the data in recent weeks supports the decision, but still recommended that people over age 65, people with compromised immune systems, people who aren’t vaccinated those who care for people at risk of severe illness continue to wear masks.

Setting where masks are still recommended indoors include schools, hospitals and health care facilities, long-term care facilities, shelters, correctional facilities and other congregate living settings.
