HONOLULU, Hawaiʻi – As the State of Hawaiʻi struggles to prepare for the impacts of the increase in COVID-19 cases on Oʻahu, the federal government – represented by the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, who is now in Honolulu – is stepping in to help.
Today, Governor David Ige approved a new “State-at-Home, Work-at-Home” order for the City and County of Honolulu, which goes into effect at midnight on Thursday for the following two weeks.
At a news conference at the Honolulu Fire Department headquarters, Governor David Ige, Mayor Kirk Caldwell, U.S. Surgeon General Adams, and Lt. Gov. Dr. Josh Green talked about the plan to conduct “surge testing” in the coming days.
