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.

In response to 144181: 14-day Quarantine Extended. . . . Thoughts?, posted by Kekepania on Thursday, 11 June 2020, at 5:33 a.m.

KONAWEB has posted its stance on this subject in the statement that appears at the top of every page on the site. We support the protocols that the governor has put in place to protect the island's safety in the long term, even though we have personally taken a big financial hit from them. His stance has paid off in a low number of COVID cases, but unfortunately, with unavoidable economic collateral damage. (It was/is very important for our limited healthcare services not to be overwhelmed by a large number of cases.) This is not an easy time for anyone. Those of you who choose to respond to Kekepania's post will need to monitor your emotions, and quote reliable sources for info. There will be no "flame wars" here. Aloha nui loa to all of you.
