Public Special Use Permit Events at State Capitol Suspended
The state Department of Accounting and General Services (DAGS) is suspending all public special use permit events at the Hawaiʻi State Capitol, Washington Place, and other facilities it manages beginning Monday, March 16. The Hawaiʻi State Art Museum will also be closed until further notice.
State officials say this is a preventative action in response to the growing concerns over the spread of COVID-19. Health officials have recommended that seniors and those with underlying health conditions avoid large crowds.
Special use permit events at DAGS facilities are tentatively set to resume on May 15.
