Aunty Sally Kaleohano’s Lūʻau Hale Remains Closed to Public
Aunty Sally Kaleohano’s Lūʻau Hale in Hilo will remain closed to the public through December 2022.
County officials initially shuttered the facility’s doors in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic when all community centers were closed. In September 2020, Hawaiʻi County Civil Defense Agency and the Department of Health ended up using the building as a COVID operations center.
The Civil Defense and DOH continue to utilize this area for their operations while the permanent Civil Defense office building undergoes renovations. A public notice will be issued once the facility reopens for public use.
