As the number of cases and hospitalizations ease, so do the mandates. Monday, March 7th, 2022 the governor of Puerto Rico announced that he is ending the mask mandate for indoor spaces.

This change will be in full effect Thursday, March 10th, with minor exceptions. Note, face masks will still be required in all health care spaces.

Starting March 10th, domestic travelers will not have to present proof of vaccination or a negative test or fill out the form upon arrival known as the "Travel declaration form".

Additionally, Gov. Pierluisi will lift all capacity restrictions for public and private business owners. He also mentioned that proof of vaccination to enter will no longer be required.
Vaccination requirements for individuals in public school students, restaurant employees, and health workers will be lifted as well.

However, Gov. Pierluisi was advised to keep vaccine mandates and proof of vaccination for events of 1,000 people. The island also advises the use of masks in enclosed public places such as airports, buses, and potentially other spaces.
