O‘ahu Moves into Modified Tier 4 Allowing Larger Groups Outdoors
Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi announced today he has received approval for a 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 in a press release announcement. “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.”
