Hawaii’s Governor David Ige announced that he will reinstate strict COVID-19 restrictions effective immediately.
With COVID-19 cases going up, the State of Hawaiʻi is taking precautions now to avert a strain on our healthcare systems. To that end – I’ll be signing an Executive Order that will limit social gatherings, effective immediately.
Social gatherings will be limited to no more than 10 indoors, 25 outdoors. Patrons in restaurants, bars, establishments must remain seated with parties maintaining six feet of distance. No mingling, and masks must be worn unless actively eating.
All high-risk activities, such as bars, restaurants, gyms, and social establishments will be set to 50% indoor capacity. Counties will review proposals for all professionally sponsored events (bigger than 50 people) and ensure appropriate safe practices will be implemented.
