Morning newspaper headline  :  Isle tourism remains under tight lockdown
Hawaii's low COVID-19 infection and mortality rates have increased calls to start reopening the state's economy - but support to restart tourism is still mixed.    Kauai's mayor has extended the 14-day self-quarantine for incoming passengers through June.   He says "the risk of the virus returning is most clearly associated with incoming travelers, whether residents or visitors, so we fell it is necessary to extend the mandatory quarantine."

A new survey, conducted last week, shows a majority have a positive view of Hawaii's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.   The question was: "Overall, do you think Hawaii government's management of the COVID-19 pandemic is headed in the right direction, or do you feel that we are going in the wrong direction?   Answers :  right direction 64%; wrong direction 25%; don't know/not sure/ refused 10%.   Other pertinent questions were also asked.

Stay well, exercise your sense of humor, and take care, everyone.
