Hawaii COVID-19 Update for 4/17/2020

We’re now releasing more people from isolation than we are getting new cases. I’m now more troubled by the lack of a disclosed plan, tentative thought it may be, about how we #maskUpAndWork  The global growth rate has been slowing everywhere, including now Japan.  Hawa’’s growth rate running about 2% right now, and our numbers

What’s the plan for returning to work? Our % new cases has been steadily dropping for the entire month of April, deaths have remained unchanged for 5 days, and those released from isolation continue to climb.

Nothing quite like a sunset, right? One of the most amazing things about sunsets besides their incredible beauty is how people line up on the beach to watch them.  It's like we're all mesmerized for about a half hour until the sun falls below the horizon. A long time ago I had an office with

Hawaii COVID-19 Update for 4/13/2020

Today’s +5 cases is a new record-breaker for smallest % increase.  My opinion: it’s time to have an open conversation on how we’re going to open up for business again.  Not saying we need to open right now, as Japan’s recent spike indicates there is peril in relaxing too early, but at the same time
