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.

Are there guidelines/rules for posting here?

I've been a member here for many years (though not very prolific as a poster). I THOUGHT there were guidelines/rules about what to post, subjects to avoid, etc., but I'm not finding anything like that. Did they exist? Do they exist? Help?

Covid-19 is surely a HUGE issue, but with the most recent posts I've seen, it's also on it's way to being a divisive and hostile discussion here in very short order. So, now what?

I do not live on the island, and so I CAN (and most certainly will) stay home. No economy boost from me. But I have cousins of a similar age (we're all late 60's) living there. In a culture that is supposedly about respect and love for the elderly, it is shocking to me to see that their health and lives are considered expendable. Shall we proceed with this "discussion"? Talk about who most deserves to lose their lives to make things better for others? Or should this subject and others be halted now?
