Re-Opening Hawaii: Governer Ige's Presentation

"On May 18th, 2020 - Gov. David Ige signed the 8th supplemental emergency proclamation, extending the 14-day quarantine for travelers arriving in the State of Hawai‘i, as well as for inter-island travelers through June 30.

In addition, Gov. Ige unveiled the re-opening and recovery plan for the State of Hawai‘i — a strategy that conveys the coordinated, statewide approach to jumpstarting the economy and recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.

According to the plan – the state will start to gradually re-open medium-risk businesses and operations beginning in June – assuming the state’s COVID-19 activity remains manageable. The re-opening of high-risk businesses and operations will eventually follow, as long as Hawai‘i’s disease activity continues to remain manageable.

A 14-day observation period between re-openings will allow the state time to assess conditions/disease activity before moving to the next level. As a safeguard, the state can consider the option of moving back – closing businesses and re-implementing restrictions if disease activity significantly increases.

The re-opening and recovery strategy (Beyond Recovery: Reopening Hawai‘i) includes four phases:

Phase 1: Stabilization focuses on healing Hawai‘i by saving lives and flattening the curve in our community. (Hawai‘i has transitioned through this phase by re-opening low-risk businesses in the last few weeks).

Phase 2: Re-opening celebrates Hawai‘i’s Kama‘aina Economy, where the state starts to re-open medium-risk businesses and activities, and later – re-opening high-risk businesses and activities.

Phase 3: Long-term recovery – where the state renews and rebuilds Hawai‘i’s economy through planning and policy discussions, incorporating transitional workforce modernization opportunities, supporting economic diversification initiatives, targeting the development of emerging industries, and advancing long-term resiliency planning. At this level, the state will focus on re-opening highest risk businesses and activities, while remaining cautious and adjusting Safe Practices as needed. This phase is expected to take much longer, since this phase covers the reshaping of Hawai‘i’s economy.

Phase 4: Resilience is the intended outcome for Hawai‘i. Together, we will emerge stronger and more resilient as a result of learning from and overcoming this unprecedented challenge."
