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.

Mahalo for all your mana'o.

Yeah, I may just ask them about a car we could borrow - it would save us close to $500 for the 11 days we may need it. There's a cool old jeep in the field... well, maybe only if it's road legal. ;D

Our fur babies are spoiled! We drove them half way across the country, spent tons to get them vaccinated, tested, qualified. Of course we're worried about them getting sick now in this very different environment. Thanks to all for your assurance about gecko safety. One of them goes WILD for tails, and loves to chase the mo'o around! I'll trust your local knowledge, and not worry too much about it. :D

In just reading the paperwork required, it seems the PO Box will be a bit easier to acquire than the driver's license. Yes, could walk to Holualoa P.O., but they've got a wait list. That will be our 3rd stop after Killer Tacos and a bubble tea.

And jeeze - everybody knows exactly where we live on here! That's hilarious! What a small and welcoming place!

I hope to meet some of you in person when we get out of quarantine. :D
