Haiku Poem – 閑散とした道

a deathly quiet
freeways wait for their cars

(Jim Woodhull)
くるま なき ワイキキ の みち かんせんしょう

On Thursday, March 26 2020, anybody visiting Hawaii or any returning Hawaiian resident must undergo a 14 day quarantine. This is to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus which unfortunately is in the islands. The only stricter measure the Governor could take would be to have all incoming and outgoing flights canceled. This sounds like the best way but only the President can decide to do that. Although the new rule does not take into effect until the 26th of March, it is already obviously working as I write this on the 25th. All State parks are already closed as are Bars, night clubs and many restaurants. In the last few days some very big hotels have also closed. The stores that are open have cut back on their hours. This rule is in effect until the end of April. Hopefully after that the worst will be over and we can slowly get back to normal again.
