City, State take big steps for public health

Councilmember Pine thanks Governor, City Department of Customer Services

HONOLULU, HAWAI‘I — The City has granted automatic, 90-day extensions for drivers whose Hawai‘i licenses expire in March, and is allowing most drivers 72 and older to renew their licenses by mail .

“Seeing the rapidly rising number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, I issued a call for temporary extensions on Monday. Now that we have community-spread cases, I am grateful to the City Department of Customer Services for this further effort to protect the health of our residents,” said Councilmember Kym Pine.

“I am further grateful for the Governor’s sweeping announcement discouraging additional visitor arrivals and enabling the screenings of cruise ship passengers,” Pine said.

Councilmember Kym Pine represents residents of District One (ʻEwa, ʻEwa Beach, Kapolei, Honokai Hale, Ko ʻOlina, Nānākuli, Mā‘ili, Wai‘anae, Mākaha, Kea‘au, Mākua) and is chair of the City Council’s Committee on Business Economic Development and Tourism.
