News Release from Office of the Governor, May 6, 2021

HONOLULU – Gov. David Ige approved Kaua‘i Mayor Derek Kawakami’s updated Business & Recreation Guidelines tier chart, and the county’s move to Tier 3 on Thursday.

The more cautious tier was activated after the island’s average case count remained elevated for the past two weeks. This is the first time Kaua‘i has moved tiers since the guidelines were approved in October 2020.

Ahead of the tier change, the county proposed modifications to the chart to better reflect its current situation and the latest health guidelines. The updated Tier 3 guidelines reduce the indoor social gathering limit to five while allowing groups of 25 outdoors. They allow team sports to continue with COVID-safe protocols in place. Each county has its own tier guidelines and this announcement applies only to Kaua‘i.

“Mahalo to Governor Ige for supporting Kaua‘i’s COVID response,” said Mayor Kawakami. “If we continue to work together, make safe choices, and get vaccinated, we look forward to moving back to Tier 4 as soon as possible.”
