Travelers may be prevented from flying if they have a temperature above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit. After Aug. 1, people visiting Hawaii who test negative up to three days prior to arriving in the state won't have to self-quarantine. Beaches are open for recreational activities and as long as social distance is maintained. Malls, car washes, nonemergency medical visits, and retailers were allowed to reopen. The state is in phase 2 of reopening, allowing indoor gathering places and exercise facilities, as well as museums, theaters, personal services, and dine-in restaurants to reopen. Boaters can allow up to 10 people per boat (unless all people aboard are from the same household). Surf schools and kayak rentals can operate with a 10-person limit.

As of June 13, gatherings of more than 50 people will be allowed where social distancing can be practiced. Nonessential travel is permitted to locations without ongoing transmission of the virus. Bars and movie theaters can reopen if they meet safety protocols, and nightclubs and large venues can open with limited standing-room capacity. Restaurants can allow more than six people at one table. Employees can return to offices if they practice social distancing. The state still encourages face mask use and maintaining 6 feet of distance from others in public. Phase 4 is scheduled to end on June 26, after which the state is supposed to enter the Idaho Rebounds Plan. It's unclear if this will happen due to an increase in coronavirus infections.

Coronavirus and Georgia hospitals

Tanner Medical Center -Villa Rica is part of Tanner Health System. The system, which also has a Carrollton hospital, has returned more than $62 million in federal provider relief money, saying the government made an error in calculating the payment to its Georgia hospitals. The “high-impact” funding was supposed to go to hospitals that admitted large numbers of COVID-19 patients, and the Tanner hospitals didn’t meet the threshold.
