For fully immunized travelers, Puerto Rico no longer requires masks to be worn in private and public spaces, indoors and outdoors.
However, local businesses still have the flexibility to set rules and limitations that exceed government requirements.
All businesses, including restaurants, theaters, shopping malls, casinos, supermarkets, pharmacies, gas stations, bars, nightclubs and gambling halls are licensed to operate at full capacity. Outdoor bars and “chinchorros” (kiosks or bars that serve local foods) require a physical distance of six feet between those who are not from the same family unit.
All attractions, activities, and events can be held at full capacity, and only those who are not fully immunized (including children ages 2-11) are required to wear masks. The exceptions are health centers and airports, where masks are mandatory for everyone.
Masks are also always required on all forms of public transport, including ferries to / from Culebra and Vieques.
Visitors arriving at the San Juan airport can receive a Johnson & Johnson vaccine in Terminal B. The same is now offered at the Maritime Transportation Authority ferry terminal in Ceiba.
