After weeks of three-digit COVID-19 cases, Governor Ige approved another stay at home, work from home order for Oahu. Similar to the order put into place in March, the proclamation, effective for at least two weeks from August 27, 2020, limits all activities to only those that are considered essential.
Non-compliance with the proclamation counts as a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $5,000, up to one year in jail, or both.
