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.

I Think Thoughts

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

Thoughts? How about observations??

I have a friend who flew in from L.A. They have free testing stations there; so he went and got a test before traveling. He printed out the email that showed his test was negative and brought it with him. At the airport he was stopped by someone he thinks was with the national guard. They asked for the address where he was staying and his phone number (they actually called to follow up a couple days later). He showed them the paper. They said he should get tested again and told him where to go. Apparently, in the employee parking lot behind the Keauhou 8-plex there is testing twice a week. So he went there first thing. He had to show his insurance card at this one. Then he stayed inside until those test results came back. They were negative. He was told if they were negative he could leave the house. He stayed inside for 5 days total. This is my first hand experience. I have not read in any news media that this is even possible. So what's da scoops??

Mahalo, Harry
