Ko Olina Oahu COVID Phased Opening Strategy Moves to Tier 3
Updated: Oct 9, 2021
Note: This is old news, the City and County of Honolulu no longer use the Tiered System.
To assist residents and visitors of Oahu to stay healthy, the City and County of Honolulu (Oahu) uses a tiering system that is tied to the number of active COVID cases at any moment in time. There are four tiers, Tier 1 being the most restrictive and Tier 4 being the most relaxed.
The City and County of Honolulu of which Ko Olina is a part of, moved to Tier 3 as of, February 25, 2021. See Mayor Rick Blangiardi's announcement here.
Movement up or down a tier is based upon meeting the criteria for the next tier, for a two week period.
The good news for residents and visitors is that Tier 3 allows for gatherings of up to 10 people, where as Tier 2 only allowed gatherings of up to 5 people. At our property, you may have up to 6 people in our two bedroom villa or up to 8 people in our three bedroom villa, and now under Tier 3 rules, guests will be able to remain together as a group when outside as well.
This covers gatherings in private homes such as the Beach Villas at Ko Olina, our swimming pools, beaches such as the lagoon in front of our property, parks, auditoriums, stadiums, arenas, and other indoor or outdoor spaces.
The same criteria applies to Restaurants where up to ten people will be allowed to gather. Social distancing rules continue to apply, with tables spaced 6 feet apart between groups.
In all cases, masks are required in public spaces and social distancing is the norm.
Continued diligence will help us to be safer, while restrictions are loosened at the same time. Careful adherence to these rules, will help us to stay in Tier 3, and after four weeks, possibly move into Tier 4, while keeping us from moving back into Tier 2 or Tier 1.
Safe travels, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
