“The first week of June will be a big week,” said Mayor Michael Victorino as he continues to make announcements surrounding the phased reopening of businesses in Maui County.

“And areas we’ve held back, because we wanted social distancing and all the other sanitation requirements.  Those will now have to be met if they want to open.  So I’m giving them a head start to start getting what you need together to open up your businesses,” he said.

The information was shared during a morning interview with Mayor Victorino who is providing updates on Pacific Media Group’s network of Maui stations as the County continues to adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today, the Mayor spoke with Shane Kahalehau of KPOA 93.5 FM on Maui, and shared his thoughts on the progress of the phased reopening of businesses in Maui County.
