Tier 3 allows social and entertainment gatherings outdoors for up to 10 people and restaurants to seat 10 people at a table. Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi announced level 3 modifications on March 11, including allowing bars to reopen under the same conditions as restaurants and extending curfew until midnight.
Honolulu will remain at level 3 of COVID-19 to open the city until at least May 5.
Today, the average number of cases for Oahu is 63, and the average positive rate in seven days is 2%, according to the mayor.
