Hawaiʻi has already taken several crucial steps to control the epidemic, including the State’s restriction on overseas travel, 14-day quarantine on all incoming visitors, stay-at-home order, and citizen adherence to social distancing guidelines. However, three more steps are critical to controlling the epidemic. Register for our live webinar to learn about these additional needs and how Hawaiʻi’s streets and economy can be gradually opened and restored.
Sumner La Croix is Professor Emeritus of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s Economics Department and a Research Fellow at the University of Hawaiʻi Economic Research Organization (UHERO). Tim Brown is a Senior Fellow at the East-West Center.
