Aloha, Friends!
Our wonderful island is focusing on keeping safe during the Coronavirus outbreak. COVID-19 is impacting many of our local businesses, including KONAWEB, but we are happy to be onboard with the required preventive measures. We will not be charging our advertisers until personal movement and travel are deemed safe. Here are the current travel restrictions.
We know that many of you are "addicted" to the KONAWEB live webcam at Kailua Bay, and use the Big Island Forum for current info. We will keep them up and running for you! The popular Big Island Calendar of Events will be on hold through June, at least.
Keep Hawai'i in your hearts, and we will LOVE to see you when the time is right!   -Konabob and Shirley
Those of you who are in a position to do so, may to help keep KONAWEB online.

Unfortunately some people take a little leeway too far. It has to be a “no” right now to keep the virus spread down as it can happen from what appears out of nowhere so quickly. Look what happened from a single employee at a Kona McDonald's – I believe 32 employees and immediate family members were infected. Go home and enjoy your take-out.

I have seen folks notice friends they probably haven’t seen in a while and all of a sudden you have a coffee klatch – and it can include hugs (ugh). They start chatting while ignoring the world around them. So there I am waiting to continue to keep a 6 foot distance but cannot move while they are taking up the pathway/aisle oblivious to the rest of us. It has happened to me in grocery stores, the post office and at my community mailbox… Therefore we have temporary rules to keep Hawaii safe.

Yes, local people have been polite to me. They move when asked, but that is not the point. We see uncaring visitors on the morning news breaking curfew who end up being sent back to the mainland. As we are all a bit under a strain these days, I would rather the security guards do their thing than my stepping in to inform someone who turns out to be far less than a polite person.
