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.
On June 25, 2020, a statewide order from Governor Ige states that you must self-quarantine for 14 days upon arriving in Hawai'i. Beginning August 1, individuals with a valid negative test up to 72 hours prior to their trip will be exempt from the quarantine.
Be aware that others on your flight may not have opted to test early and may be infected.

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.

Fantastic news Harry Pritikin pointed out a few days ago, which I didn’t know. And of course I know the numbers will fluctuate at least for a while. But I just checked and today STILL Hawaii is third from last on list of American states ranked by number of cases with Covid-19 virus.

We have friends in Peru, Germany, the Mainland, who almost daily tell us, “You’re so lucky to be living in Hawaii, especially now!” (In Lima, Peru seniors are not allowed to go shopping, only younger people; and the lockdown is far more strict and onerous than here. I read that in smaller towns in Ecuador, people have been burning the corpses because nobody comes to take them away.) I feel compassion, and even more happy/grateful for where I am. (Especially this weekend.)

Also - I’m really enjoying the cool breezes and the relatively cool weather, and the rain which seems to fall more often and more of it - than I’ve ever seen it rain in Kona. Midday here today Sunday and I went to the window and felt the COOOOOOL breeze coming in from the ocean. I wonder if this is typical May weather for Kona. Either way I love it. Every day.
Recently in a very silly mood I wrote the following and today I’ve sobered up, but I think I'll post it. Speed readers will suffer least.

Through Kona Town cool breezes blow,
