    There is NO such thing as “community spread” on Kauai. It was all brought over here from infected mainland tourists and idiotic inter-island visitors this past autumn. Thanks to Mayor Kawakami, of course, who realized that having 0 Covid cases wasn’t benefiting him and his corrupt friends in Big Tourism financially.

    There are some good news for the job seekers. Like if you wanted a quick job and easy pay and have that desire to work without any knowledge of COVID-19. Small businesses are always hiring. Very much a high in demand job due to the nature of the business. Easy and replaceable work. But the law says you have to wear a face mask. I think it is still against the law if they force you to take a vaccine prior to hiring. This was unnecessary. You can still be hired. I think Wal-Mart was hiring. $11.50 / hour and full time work because they have a shortage of workers. So that is one news on the economic front.
