GOVERNOR EXTENDS STAY-AT-HOME ORDER TILL MAY 31
Mandatory 14-day quarantine for travelers, eviction moratorium also continue
Gov. David Ige signed a 6th supplementary emergency proclamation extending the stay-at-home order across the state through May 31.
The stay-at-home order means residents may leave their homes only for various essential needs, including healthcare, purchasing food, medicine, gasoline, taking care of the elderly, minors, or those with disabilities, returning to a place of residence outside of Hawai‘i, picking up educational materials for distance learning, receiving meals or other related services. Outdoor exercise is also permitted – including swimming, surfing and walking pets.
In addition, running, jogging or walking on the beach will be permitted, as long as social distancing requirements are observed.
Also extended through the end of May -- the 14-day quarantine for both visitors and residents entering the state and for inter-island travelers.
The eviction moratorium, which prevents any eviction from a residential dwelling for failure to pay rent, also remains in effect through May 31.
In addition, social distancing requirements remain in place across the state through the end of May.
