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.

14-day Quarantine Extended. . . . Thoughts?

I had a trip booked in June, but changed it to July. I found out yesterday that my July trip will not be happening and I’m a little sad. I was trying to stay hopeful that they would have a safe, effective travel plan in place for July. I understand the reasons for the quarantine and feel it’s important to keep the island safe, but I’m still bummed about my trip. I’m hoping Hawaiian will reschedule my trip for October. I work at a school and that’s the only time I’ll be able to travel and use my time-share for 2020.
I’m curious as to everyone’s thought about them extending the 14-day quarantine, especially those of you will live there. I’ve been reading comments online and it seems as though most residents are split 50/50 on the subject. Half are ready for tourism to open so they can get back to work, and the other half want to keep people away.
In keeping with the Aloha spirit I have always know Konaweb to have, what are your thoughts?
