On Aug. 6, 2020, Gov. David Ige signed the 11th Proclamation Related to the COVID-19 Emergency Interisland Travel Quarantine.

They must wear appropriate protective gear and follow the safe practices referenced in the Tenth Proclamation. We urge all of our contractors to follow the guidelines in our pledge, The Commitment of Hawaii’s Construction Industry: The Pledge to Avoid the Spread of COVID-19 on Hawaii’s Construction Sites.
