Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism:

Economic Reopening and Reshaping Strategy Outlined Online

Anyone interested in getting more detail on the State’s Beyond Recovery: Reopening Strategy, can now view the entire detailed strategy online. It was developed by the Governor’s Office along with the Hawai‘i Economic and Community Recovery Navigator in collaboration with many government agencies and business sector partners.

The reopening strategy, presented by the Governor in late May, is informed by three guiding principles: save lives and prevent suffering, empower individuals with safe practices, and reopen and reshape Hawai‘i to be stronger and more resilient.

A phased approach to reopening is already underway, with a continued focus on four key public health pillars:

  • Prevention: Safe practices, self-isolation and quarantine
  • Detection: Provide a robust picture of infections in communities
  • Containment: Investigate, test, isolate and monitor cases and close contacts
  • Treatment: Clinical care and treatment, symptom management

The state roadmap to recovery and resiliency includes 4 distinct phases: Stabilization, Reopening, Long-term Recovery, and Resilience. The state is currently in phase 2, the Reopening Phase, with an emphasis on strengthening and promoting the Kama‘aina Economy. During this phase interisland travel will reopen without quarantine restrictions on June 16. This phase is informed by the “Act with Care” impact level, which asks all Hawai‘i residents to continue Safe Practices recommended by the State Department of Health such as handwashing, physical distancing, and wearing face coverings. The strategy includes multiple graphical representations of the phases, impact levels, decision points, and useful information for individuals and businesses.

Department of Land and Natural Resources:

Boating Rules Relaxed & Commercial Water Sports Allowed To Reopen
Effective immediately, emergency restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 

pandemic for commercial and recreational boating and ocean recreation are being relaxed statewide. Commercial and recreational boating can now include up to ten people on a vessel at one time, operating under new COVID-19 “Act With Care” guidelines. This includes passengers and crew and applies to all recreational and commercial vessels. It applies in all four Hawai‘i counties. The ten-person limitation can be exceeded if everyone is from the same household.

Commercial watersports operators, like surf schools and kayak rental companies, can also resume operations with the same restrictions – a limit of 10 people including crew or staff. 

Boating and Ocean Recreation COVID-19 guidelines are based on Dept. of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, as well as input from boaters in Hawai‘i and in coordination with the counties. These guidelines remain in effect and call for physical distancing, frequent hand washing and wearing of masks, when practical.

Lana’i Mouflon Sheep Lottery Cancelled

The 2020 hunting lottery for mouflon sheep on the island of Lānaʻi has been cancelled by the DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW). The usual season will be modified in order to create a combined season for both mouflon sheep and axis deer. Details regarding this modified season will be announced in the coming weeks based on regulation of interisland travel and considerations regarding COVID-19. Commencement of the hunt is contingent upon the lifting of travel restrictions, adherence to social distancing guidelines, the health and safety of both DLNR staff and support from Pulama Lānaʻi and the Lānaʻi community. Hunters should remain informed of the changing status of the COVID-19 emergency, as changes may result in the postponement, reassignment, or cancellation of scheduled hunts. For complete information:
