As of July 5, masks are no longer required for fully vaccinated people in private and public spaces, indoor and outdoor in Puerto Rico, per a July 1 executive order, officials at Discover Puerto Rico said.
Local businesses can still set rules and limitations that “go beyond local government requirements,” officials said. In addition, all businesses, including restaurants, theaters, shopping malls, casinos, supermarkets, drugstores and gas stations, can operate at full capacity.

Bars, nightclubs, and game rooms are also allowed to open at full capacity, while outdoor bars and “chinchorros” require a physical distance of six feet between guests not in the same family unit.
Attractions, activities and events can take place at full capacity. People who are not fully immunized, including children aged 2 to 11 years, or who are immunocompromised are required to wear masks, except inside a health center or airport, where masks are mandatory for all.
Masks remain mandatory for all public transport, including all ferries to and from the offshore islands of Vieques and Culebra. Visitors arriving at Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU) can receive a Johnson and Johnson vaccine in Terminal B. Johnson and Johnson vaccines are also available on Vieques and Culebra through the Ceiba Maritime Transportation Authority ferry terminal.
