    Tents, umbrellas and people packed the shore near Walls on the Fourth of July in Waikiki. Department of Health officials have attributed household COVID-19 clusters to social interactions such as gatherings on the Fourth of July. ⁠

Indoor and outdoor social gatherings on Oahu must be limited to no more than 10 people, regardless of household or living unit affiliation, under a city plan approved by Gov. David Ige.

Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s new order which takes effect immediately, also specifically restricts funerals and other death-related events to 10 people similar to the limit on all other gatherings.

When in groups of 10 or less, both indoors or outdoors, the individuals gathering are expected to keep a physical distance of at least six feet between themselves and those from different households and wear face coverings as mandated in previous orders.

A signed version of Emergency Order No. 2020-22 (Amended and Restated Ho‘oulu i Honolulu – Restore Honolulu 5.0), can be found at Honolulu.gov.
