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 September 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.

Unsafe behavior may be reported to the DLNR at (808) 643-3567 or the COVID Hotline at (808) 935-0031.
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 August, 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.

Just moved to Holualoa

We have just arrived in Holualoa a week ago, and have a week left of quarantine! 1700ft, and colder than I expected. ;D

Mahalo for any advice you can provide.

1: Are there any local rental agencies with older cars for better rates for our 2-7 days between end of quarantine and when our own car arrives in Hilo?

2: Is it really as hard as we've heard to get a P.O. Box? On waiting list in Holualoa, Kailua seems to have them, but won't give us a box number without 2 forms of ID. Do they need to be Hawaiian IDs? Will they also require proof of lease and/or a bill? We have lease agreement, but all utilites and internet are included, and our address is not mailable (google says "a'ole!")

3: Are there gecko live traps? We're worried about our popoki catching and eating a mo'o - they can carry a fluke that destroys the liver.

Anything else we need to know?

Been planning our trip for 8 years, visited many times, drove half-way across the mainland with 2 cats, 2 flights, quarantine, but finally here to stay! :D
