    Soo….we’re back below 10 cases a day. Who would have seen that coming. More testing. Positive spike in cases. No hospitalizations. People are not dropping dead in the streets or at home people! And now we are back to a restricted state in the community. This has to stop. Kawakamas is abusing his mayoral power at this point. Let’s not forget this boy was just a spoiled grove farm poster boy a few years ago. He does not have the qualifications to make these executive orders.

    agreed 100% “Oookkkk” -and if Kawakami really thought the threat was that serious, why didn’t he use some of the CARES millions to increase hospital capacity/ICU/ventilators, etc?

    And the whiners who sometimes comment that it’s all about money must use seashells to pay rent, buy groceries, etc.
