    That is great news. They say the tourism economy will pick up by summer. But there will still be other activities. Like sports, beaches, hiking, etc. Look forward to those events. Some sports, not all will be played. As you may already know the death toll for Hawai’i is 289. Keeping an eye on that figure also is the case count in the 21,000 mark. So watch out for that number too.
