O‘ahu businesses and activities to continue operations in Tier 3

News Release from City and County of Honolulu, May 7, 2021

HONOLULU – Mayor Rick Blangiardi and Governor David Ige have come to an agreement that the City and County of Honolulu will continue to operate in Tier 3 of the reopening strategy for the next four weeks, meaning O‘ahu businesses and activities will continue operations without reverting back to the Tier 2 framework at the present time.

“I would like to thank Governor Ige for his support and allowing the community to stay in Tier 3, which has a profound impact on our businesses, families and community,” said Mayor Rick Blangiardi. “We are focused on the broader definition of health and I believe moving back to Tier 2 at this point would have had a tremendous negative impact on the overall health and economic recovery, including the impacts on livelihoods, jobs and mental and emotional health.”

“The next four weeks are critical in determining if we can continue in Tier 3 or are forced to take a step backwards. We need the community to help guide the cause and prevent the spread of the virus by wearing masks, staying physically distanced and getting the vaccine if you are able to,” said Mayor Blangiardi. “The more people being vaccinated brings us that much closer to a day when we can eliminate the tier system altogether, but we must have community support, so please continue practicing the safety measures that have made Hawai‘i the best in the country in terms of low case counts, positivity rate, hospitalizations and mortality rate.”

Previously approved Tier 3 modifications will continue as announced, which includes permitted youth outdoor sports which is set to begin April 12 and permitted adult outdoor league sports beginning April 19. For additional information on the restart of outdoor organized sports please click here.

O‘ahu residents are encouraged to visit the website, oneoahu.org for more information on Proclamations, Emergency Orders, Business Resources, and Financial and Housing Assistance Programs in the City and County of Honolulu. If they do not find what they are looking for on the site, residents can call the 768-CITY (2489) information hotline or email covidresponse@honolulu.gov
