It’s true this holiday season in Hawai‘i will be like no other. The pandemic continues to impact our health, our jobs and our way of life, with challenging times still ahead. But there are glimmers of hope: Most people here are still masking up, a vaccine is on the horizon and our COVID-19 case numbers are among the lowest in the nation. My team and I want everyone to know how important it is — now more than ever — to stay vigilant. Let’s take care of each other and our community as we face the new year together — with hope.
