Below is the full text of the Governor’s sixth supplementary proclamation, which effectively extends the state’s stay-at-home orders through May 31st and extends the state’s 14-day mandatory travel quarantine through the end of May.

“This was not an easy decision. I know this has been difficult for everyone. Businesses need to reopen. People want to end this self-isolation and we want to return to normal,” said Gov. Ige. “But this virus is potentially deadly, especially for the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions. Thanks to our residents, we are flattening the curve, saving lives, and avoiding a resurgence of this virus by not reopening prematurely.”

The Governor said that he is relaxing some of his previous orders and will now allow running, jogging or walking on the beach, as long as social distancing requirements are observed.  “This provides consistency on beach access. The proclamation also clarifies that groups of more than two people are allowed to fish for subsistence or commercial purposes,” he said.

The governor is also now allowing elective medical procedures to be conducted, made possible through an executive order signed a few days ago.
