At quite a price. Remember the original Hawai'i Five O? McGarret had the famous line, "Seal the rock, Danno". That's what Ige did. Suspended all interisland flights, locked all visitors in their hotels for 14 days, banned access to the beaches, etc. A very totalitarian move but it's a one Party state and he got away with it. Hawai'i is a VERY expensive place to live and there are tens of thousands now who have gone without work and therefore money. None of it eliminated the virus, it just delayed it until they open back up.

What we have learned and what we do from this point on is what matters
"In hindsite". Correct, no one knew what was coming except the Chinese Communist Party. And they hid the truth.

People I know well returned from HI to live on the mainland in October. They keep emailing me links about how property taxes are going through the roof for nonresidents, especially those who own properties they rent out short term. They had lived in a $750K+/unit condo complex on the Big Island. HOA was about $1,300/mo. Only a few owners were permanent residents (who pay a fraction of the property tax nonresidents pay). Some owners will be losing their properties to foreclosure as they have lost their short term rental income which covered their expenses. It is a mess over there right now.
