“We are all in this together” and “This too shall pass.” These are just two of the many phrases of encouragement we’ve been reading going around social media as we all try to deal with this COVID19 coronavirus pandemic.
Things are changing quickly. I started drafting this blog post on Monday morning and at that time there was only one presumptive positive case on Maui. Today is Friday, this is the 6th revision of this post and there are now 5 presumptive cases on Maui. More will be announced as we start testing more.
We are dealing with an emerging, rapidly evolving situation, not only here on our island, but all over the world. Therefore, instead of trying to give an update on what is going on here on Maui, and Hawaii in general, I am going to share with you a list of websites where you can get the current reliable updates:

On March 18th Mayor Michael Victorino announced a number of Public Health Emergency Rules effective as of 7:45 a.m. Friday, March 20, 2020, directed toward limiting the gathering of groups of people and curtailing vehicular transportation except for essential activities or operation of essential business or government functions, such as travel to and from work and medical appointments. Full Public Health Emergency Rules can be found here.
We would like to confirm that we are still conducting business in this time of “uncertainties” and “new normal”. However, we are conducting it in a responsible, mindful way taking considerations of what’s happening around us, applying all necessary precautions and abiding by what our Mayor directed.
