Effective immediately Honolulu County—which encompasses all of Oʻahu—will move into a less-restrictive Tier 4 of its COVID-19 restrictions.

This change allows social gatherings of up to 25 people outdoors, including at parks and beaches. Outdoors weddings can now have up to 200 people.

But 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 Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi in a new release. “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.”

Here are some of the modifications:

  • Social gatherings outdoors allowed with up to 24 people.
  • Social gatherings indoors allowed with up to 10 people.
  • Commercial recreational boating allowed without capacity limit (restaurant/bar rules apply if food/beverage consumption is allowed).
  • Outdoor weddings are allowed with up to 200 people.
  •  Social establishments such as dance/nightlife/karaoke are allowed up to 50% capacity if all attendees are tested or show proof of full vaccination.
  • Indoor events such as concerts, meetings and conventions are allowed with a mitigation plan and 50% capacity if all attendees are tested or show proof of full vaccination
  • Road races and triathlons allowed with a permit, starting group size subject to gathering size limit.
