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.

Aloha and the virus

Having aloha doesn't mean opening yourself up to being infected with the virus.
Aloha does mean wearing a mask and obeying stay at home directives to protect your family and community, which includes the front line workers who check you out at the grocery store and Lowe's, and the medical helpers, and many more. We need them very badly - and they need the paychecks. Don't put them out of commission by being selfish and getting them sick.
As I said in an earlier post, there are many on this island who have symptoms who have not been able to get tested. The statistics just show KNOWN cases. Also unknown is how many people are asymptomatic or who have been exposed and don't know they are carriers yet. Therefore, be caring and think of others - wear the mask and practice social distancing.
