I’ve gotten more than a few emails from people asking if they should come out to Hawaii during this COVID-19 outbreak.  As luck would have it, local resident Patricia Ravarra volunteered to share her opinion on this topic and she was kind enough to write an opinion piece about it.  I think Pat has done a good job of combining both factual elements (like the current quarantine in place) as well as a cultural/historical element you probably have never heard of.   When people ask me about whether they should come out or not, I send them to this link and I think it’s a good read if you’re contemplating a visit.
