Covid-19 information for the County of Hawai‘i is regularly updated here. The USCRTF plans to have an in-person meeting conducted mostly indoors. The Planning Committee plans on following appropriate guidance so that attendees can safely meet. This may include spacing event venues to encourage social distancing, and requiring face masks be worn during indoor sessions and transportation to Site Visits.
As the COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly changing global event, we expect these restrictions to change before the August USCRTF meeting. Please check back to see updated Covid-19 approaches as the event approaches and organizers are better able to plan for necessary accommodations.
