HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell says he hopes to soon allow some “low-risk” activities banned under the stay-at-home order to resume.
Those activities include golfing, shopping for a car at a dealership (without taking a test drive), going to an open house and gravesite visitations.
Caldwell made the announcement at a news conference at city hall, during which he also stressed that wide-scale testing is key to reopening Oahu’s economy.
Earlier this week, Caldwell announced he was extending the stay-at-home order through May 31, but would lift some restrictions.
The only firm change announced so far: On Saturday, the city will reopen parks for walking, bicycling and running ― but no group sports or gatherings.
The mayor’s statements come as the number of coronavirus cases in Hawaii continue to a downward trend. On Thursday, there were four new cases reported, only one of which was on Oahu.
