HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii Gov. David Ige said Thursday he’s inclined to extend his “safer-at-home” order through the end of June to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Ige said he also plans to maintain the state’s requirement that travelers arriving in the state observe 14 days of quarantine.
The governor explained his intentions during a talk streamed live on Facebook.
Ige said he would be examining allowing more businesses to reopen, including hair salons, barber shops and restaurants with dine-in service.
These activities carry more risk for spreading the virus than activities already allowed, like golfing and take-out restaurants.
Ige said the state would look at guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for information on how to keep employees and customers safe.
