Waikīkī Shell Parking Lot to assist in American Samoa repatriation effort

Section of parking lot off-limits to public use on Jan. 18, Feb. 7, and Feb. 22

News Release from City and County of Honolulu, January 17, 2021

O‘AHU – To assist with the safe passage of American Samoa residents back to their island home, the Office of the Lieutenant Governor is coordinating with the City and County of Honolulu to facilitate safe travel and quarantine arrangements as part of the repatriation process.

Approximately 800 American Samoan residents are anticipated to transit through Honolulu, be tested for COVID-19, and quarantine en route to their previously shuttered island home.

This process involves a the use of a section of the Waikīkī Shell parking lot on Monsarrat Avenue while the American Samoan residents await check-in at the nearby Waikīkī Sands Hotel for their mandated quarantine. 

As a result, part of this parking lot will be off-limits for public use from 6 a.m. through 6 p.m. on Jan. 18, Feb. 7, and Feb. 22. Additional restriction may be necessary if the need arises.

We appreciate the patience and understanding of our island community as we provide these public facilities to assist are American Samoa ‘ohana in their much anticipated journey back home.

If you need an auxiliary aid/service, other accommodations due to a disability, or an interpreter for a language other than English in reference to this announcement, please call DPR at (808) 768-3003 on weekdays from 7:45 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. or email parks@honolulu.gov
