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.

Antibody testing

In response to 144070: Many, many have not been tested, posted by Shirley on Wednesday, 13 May 2020, at 12:24 p.m.

I'm not sure that everyone who wants to get tested for the virus is able to. Are the CDC guidelines still being followed: people with symptoms or close contacts of people who have tested positive? That leaves the possibility that there are many asymptomatic carriers.

Josh Green said that Hawaii Pacific Health tested 2600 of their health care workers for Covid antibodies and only 0.48% were positive. If the antibodies are providing immunity, that's a very small number of those tested who possibly have immunity.
