OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR — Statement by Governor David Ige on florist operations

April 27, 2020

In late-afternoon conversations with the mayors, we decided that florists will be able to begin operations on May 1, as long as they can do so in a way that is safe for employees and customers. This requires compliance with the social distancing requirements set forth in Sec. III-D of the 6th Supplemental Proclamation.

Governor Ige will speak in more detail about this decision during a Facebook LIVE segment today at 5:30 p.m.

This event will be streamed LIVE through Facebook Live at
