Hawaii Postpones Reopening

HawaiiHawaii will not reopen to tourism until October at the earliest, said Hawaii Gov. David Ige. This comes as COVID-19 cases in Hawaii surge.

Hawaii Governor Ige also approved Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s latest emergency orders that returns Oahu to the Act Now Honolulu-No Social Gatherings, from the Act with Care phase to try and flatten the recent surge in COVID-19 cases on the island.

Oahu restrictions now include:

  • No indoor or outdoor gatherings for the next 28 days
  • No parties larger than 5 people
  • Face coverings required at all shopping malls
  • Face coverings required at all in-person spiritual services, no singing, no wind instruments
  • No groups larger than 5 at restaurants (down from 10)
  • Outdoor attractions, recreational and commercial boating-no groups larger than 5
  • No social gatherings are permitted in businesses
  • Businesses encouraged to reduce employee numbers on-site by encouraging tele-commuting or staggered work schedules.
  • No groups larger than 5 at museums and movie theaters
  • Bars, beaches, parks, trails, remained closed

Governor Ige, Mayor Caldwell, and Health Director Dr. Bruce Anderson all say they feel these modified restrictions will lead to a steady decline in the number of cases on Oahu over the next few weeks.
