Mayor deems fabric sellers and suppliers as "Essential Business"

HONOLULU -- Mayor Kirk Caldwell today signed Emergency Order No. 2020-06 making fabric sellers and suppliers on O Ľahu an "Essential Business" as defined in Section II of his Stay at Home Order under the following conditions:

  • The business is primarily engaged in selling fabric and related supplies;
  • Only two customers are allowed in the Fabric Store at a time, and the Fabric Store has implemented effective procedures to prevent any line from forming outside (appointment-only system, etc.);
  • All orders from the Fabric Store, other than those to be made in person, are facilitated exclusively online, or by other remote means;
  • Orders from the Fabric Store, other than those to be made in person, are fulfilled by no-contact delivery; a business providing mailing and shipping and delivery services to residences and end users or through commercial channels; or by curbside pick-up consistent with Social Distancing Requirements (as defined in the Stay at Home Order) to the extent possible;
  • In-person and pick-up orders from the Fabric Store are solely for the purpose of obtaining materials necessary to make masks; and
  • The physical presence of workers at the facility providing the fabric and related supplies is limited to the greatest extent feasible, and such workers must comply with Social Distancing Requirements (as defined in the Stay at Home Order) to the extent possible.
  • This Order is consistent with Emergency Order No. 2020-02, and in furtherance of Mayor Caldwell's recommendation for residents of the City and County of Honolulu to wear masks in public.

"I cannot emphasize enough my strong recommendation for all O Ľahu residents to wear a mask when they have to go out in public for essential business", said Mayor Caldwell. "Masks and face coverings when worn by the public can limit the transmission of this virus and ultimately help save lives. That is why I want to make sure we support the local production of masks, fabric sellers and suppliers."

This Order went into effect at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, April 13 and continues in force and effect until 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 30.
