Honolulu Loosens COVID-19 Restrictions as Vaccinations Rise

(AP) — Honolulu is loosening some restrictions on social activity now that more than half its population has been vaccinated against COVID-19. The new rules allow outdoor social gatherings of up to 25 people and indoor gatherings of up to 10. Karaoke bars and nightclubs may operate at 50% capacity if attendees are tested or show proof they have been fully vaccinated. The city will allow gatherings of 25 indoors and 75 outdoors once 60% of the population has been vaccinated. All limits will be lifted when the vaccination rate tops 70%. Honolulu reported 25 new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, down 25% from two weeks earlier.
