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.

In response to 144056: question, posted by Fred M on Monday, 11 May 2020, at 7:36 a.m.

I spoke with a member of the county task force 10 days ago, and he claimed they were debating keeping the island free of tourists for 12-18 months. He went on to say that it was because of a lack of capacity to handle any level of significant breakout in the Big Island's hospital system. He also indicated that nothing had been decided on, just discussion at that point.
