Mayor Caldwell Outlines Act Now Honolulu-No Social Gatherings Order 

News Release from City and County of Honolulu, August 18, 2020

Mayor Caldwell said at the news briefing that county and state leaders discussed the modified restrictions for O‘ahu over the past five days, trying to decide whether to use a scalpel or a hammer. “We’ve chosen a scalpel,” Caldwell said. Key changes from the previous restrictions, going into effect at midnight tomorrow (Wednesday) 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 theatres 
  • 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 O‘ahu over the next few weeks.
