Mayor Victorino issues statement on Gov. Ige’s changes to Hawaii’s Emergency Proclamation

Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino issued this statement after Governor David Ige’s news conference today about changes to his Emergency Proclamation:

“I want to thank the people of Maui County for doing such an excellent job of protecting and supporting one another throughout this entire pandemic. Our 1.5% positivity rate is one of the nation’s lowest.  I also want to thank Governor Ige for his leadership and guidance over the past 20 months. I have no doubt the governor’s methodical approach saved hundreds of lives.

After the expiration of the state’s current state of emergency on Tuesday, November 30, the four county mayors will determine appropriate guidelines for their respective communities. 

I remind everyone that vigilance is still needed as infection rates are rising in the continental US and Europe.  As we monitor the global situation we will continue to seek guidance from our medical advisors.

My administration is currently reviewing the existing rules and we will soon announce plans to ease more of Maui County’s public health restrictions. We have much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving and I wish the people of Maui County a very happy, healthy holiday.”
