Hawaii Governor David Ige issued an executive order reinstating some restrictions as part of a response to a recent surge in the number of COVID-19 cases throughout the islands.

Vaccinated travelers can still bypass Hawaii’s mandatory 10-day quarantine by following the procedures noted on the state’s Safe Travels website.

Once in Hawaii, however, visitors and residents alike must abide by the updated restrictions Ige announced in early August.

Those restrictions include:

  • Limiting social gatherings to 10 people indoors
  • Limiting social gatherings to 25 people outdoors
  • Reduced capacity, to 50%, for restaurants, bars, gyms and other social establishments
  • Social establishments must maintain 6 feet of distance between parties
  • Masks must be worn at all times, except while eating or drinking
  • Events such as weddings and meetings must submit safety plans to the county for prior approval
