HOUSE SPEAKER SCOTT K. SAIKI ANNOUNCES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AT THE HAWAIʻI STATE CAPITOL WILL REMAIN CLOSED THROUGH APRIL 30
Extension to maintain consistency with Gov. Ige’s ‘stay at home’ order
Honolulu, Hawaiʻi – House Speaker Scott K. Saiki today announced that the House of Representatives' offices at the Hawaiʻi State Capitol will remain closed through April 30 to maintain consistency with Governor David Ige’s “stay at home” order directing all persons to remain and work from home except for those performing necessary functions.
Upon learning that a member of the State Senate had tested positive for COVID-19 last month, all House offices and agencies were closed through April 5. Subsequently, the Governor issued his order which remains in effect through April 30.
The Legislature is an essential part of government. However, Representatives may determine their own office hours and staffing needs based on their respective circumstances. Staff who remain at home should work from home.
Hawaii residents can continue to contact their Representatives by phone, email or social media. Go to https://www.capitol.hawaii.gov/members/legislators.aspx?chamber=H for contact information.
