  • Impact level and impacts to daily life vary by county. Check your county’s emergency information for details.
  • At each impact level, residents are encouraged to follow health guidance with regard to Safe Practices and gathering size.
  • At increased risk populations are currently defined by CDC as: persons 65 years of age and older; people of all ages with underlying medical conditions (particularly not well controlled), including people with chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma, people who have serious heart conditions, people who are immunocompromised, people with severe obesity, people with diabetes, people with chronic kidney disease undergoing dialysis, and people with liver disease; people who live in a nursing home or long-term care facility.

The “Safer at Home” impact level indicates that new COVID-19 cases may occur through controlled community spread, with stressed capacity utilization for testing, hospitals, and/or contact tracing.

Future of Hawaiʻi

COVID-19 is changing how our kamaʻāina live and work in Hawaiʻi.

To address the economic and community impacts of COVID-19, Governor David Ige issued a proclamation on April 8, 2020 to establish a Hawaiʻi Economic & Community Navigator to coordinate, direct, and implement a statewide economic and community recovery and resilience plan.

The roadmap to Hawaiʻi’s recovery and resilience is comprised of four phases that represent the pathway to stabilizing, reopening, and, ultimately, recovering to a stronger and more resilient outcome.
