The Island and the State of Hawaii is one of the safest places to be in the United States and we must continue to follow the preventive measures that will see us through for the next few months. We need to continue to stay healthy with exercise, fresh air, sunlight, cleanliness and social connectedness within the preventive policies of face coverings, distancing, and gatherings of no more than ten people. Please accept this kuleana to keep Hawaii safe especially when we gather and celebrate during this Holiday Season. Mahalo for your kokua.
Thank you for listening and have a safe weekend.
