    Governor Ige extended his emergency proclamation for another 60 days, restricting social gatherings to 10 indoors, 25 outdoors. NOTE: There is a section about Professional Events (Exhibit F, section C) that professional weddings CAN fall under, if the City and County of Honolulu would allow it .
