O‘ahu moves into Tier 4 allowing larger group sizes outdoors and improved operations

Social gatherings up to 25 people allowed outdoors

News Release from City and County of Honolulu, June 11, 2021

HONOLULU – Mayor Rick Blangiardi and the City and County of Honolulu announces it has received approval of its newly modified framework and move into an expanded Tier 4, effective immediately. The move allows social gatherings of up to 25 people at outdoor venues, including at parks and beaches. The group size for indoor social gatherings remains at 10 people.

“We continue to make solid progress as a community in our fight against COVID. At this point vaccinations are key to easing restrictions, and hopefully ending the tier system altogether,” said Mayor Rick Blangiardi. “We are in this fight together, and if you have yet to get your vaccination, I strongly urge you to do so as soon as possible.”
