Mayor Caldwell Provides Guidelines For Resuming In-Person Spiritual Services
Mayor Caldwell provides guidelines for resuming in-person spiritual services
HONOLULU -- Mayor Kirk Caldwell announced today that starting Saturday, May 23, Governor David Ige has approved the City and County of Honolulu's Order that allows in-person spiritual services on O Ľahu to resume with associated restrictions and recommendations. This reopening is consistent with the State's reopening framework.
"Gathering together safely, praying together, and taking part in group worship is so important right now, as so many of our residents have been practicing physical distancing for months," said Mayor Caldwell. "Religious services can be a key resource to help many of us get through these tough times since spiritual institutions can play a significant role in our emotional and spiritual well-being. Restoring these in-person interactions will allow people to connect again in a much deeper way."
In-person spiritual services may be conducted starting on May 23 provided all persons present at the service must maintain six feet of physical distance between others, except members of the same household or living unit. Organizers are also encouraged to limit the number of persons attending their in-person spiritual services to ensure this physical distancing requirement is met and that appropriate COVID-19 mitigation plans and procedures are implemented.
These are just a few of the requirements for in-person spiritual services to resume operations. The full list can be found in an amended Exhibit A of the Mayor's Ho‚Äėoulu i Honolulu 2.0 Order (Restore Honolulu 2.0 Order).
