As case counts continue to increase across the Nation we need to do all that we can to keep the number of positive cases low on Hawaii Island. Hawaii Island remains one of the safest places in the United States. Your help is needed to keep it that way. Please accept the kuleana of wearing your facemasks, keeping a safe distance from others, and not gathering in groups larger than 10 persons and in this way keep our family, friends, and community safe.
Thank you for listening and have a safe Weekend.
