LIHUE — Mayor Derek S. K. Kawakami has signed an eighth supplementary emergency proclamation for the County of Kauai, and has amended the emergency rule and order as it applies to legal Transient Vacation Rentals in the Lumahai, Wainiha, and Ha‘ena area.
“As of May 1, we will allow legal TVRs to operate with the understanding that all parks and beaches in Ha‘ena remain closed and off limits,” Kawakami said. “We will continue to work with our government partners and the community during this time of transition.”
The county will be working with permitted TVR owners to ensure that their guests receive temporary vehicle placards into the Wainiha area, and further reminds all residents and visitors of the restrictions that remain in place.
Until the highway reopens during the week of May 20, access into the Lumahai-Wainiha-Ha‘ena area will continue to be restricted.
