HONOLULU -- Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell says the city plans to allow some activities that were shut down last month to control the spread of the coronavirus to resume under new guidelines.

The mayor said Tuesday the city will allow social gatherings of up to five people, including at beaches and hiking trails.

Retail businesses will be allowed to open at 50% of capacity. Restaurants would be allowed to seat up to five diners at a table as long as the patrons provide their names and contact information so tracers can reach them later if necessary. Diners will have to wear masks when they are not eating.
