The city of Honolulu, Hawaii, is instituting a "pilot" curfew for the city into place to try to avoid the spread of coronavirus over the coming Easter weekend.
Police Chief Susan Ballard announced in a press conference that most people will not be allowed to use any vehicles – “anything with a wheel,” she said – from 11 p.m. local time until 5 a.m. each day, as police patrols are increased.
Although it is currently in effect only for the upcoming weekend, Ballard says it may be extended through the rest of the month if it’s considered a success.
The mayor also announced a new campaign called “No Butts on Beaches,” encouraging people not to use public beaches for sunbathing.
Caldwell says socially distant surfing is still allowed, but with no mingling afterward.
“When you come out of the water, maybe you rinse off, but you go home,” Caldwell said.
