LIHUE, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Kauai has followed through on their promise to enforce the state’s mandatory quarantine and stay-at-home orders.
Three air travelers over the last week have been arrested on the Garden Island for failing to have suitable lodging accommodations. More than a dozen others have been cited while out and about for non-essential business or for breaking the island’s curfew.
On Saturday, Kauai Mayor Derek Kawakami called out these people by calling them “covidiots"
“The county has received reports of selfish individuals violating the quarantine, and we have responded strongly. These people are willing to risk the health and safety of others for their personal gain while others are sacrificing their jobs, sacrificing their freedom — sacrificing everything that we all wanna do,” Kawakami said.
He continued on to acknowledge the hardwork of medical professionals, first responders, grocery store and food establishment workers, and county leaders.
“For everybody that is making sacrifices in the name of the health and safety of our kupuna and those that are most vulnerable, there are still individuals who are willing to sacrifice all of that to put their own selfish needs in front of the needs of our community. These folks are covidiots and it’s not going to be tolerated,” he added.
As of Saturday, Kauai had 15 COVID-19 cases total. Kawakami said seven of those had either recovered or flown back to the mainland. For the remaining active cases, most were in isolation at home, but one remained hospitalized.

I feel bad for all of the people on your home island who are sacrificing so much, struggling, having their lives derailed, because of our collective disinterest in treating Kaui and places like it as the unique situations that they truely represent. Kaui deserves a Kaui solution, not a wuhan or a new york or an Italy solution. :(

don't help your cause when you can't even spell the name correctly.
remember the story about how f..haole came about.
it's things like this.
Now if you spelled it correctly you would had a point to make
My uncle Kaui (David) would have said the same.

But Kauai like Molokai don't like outsiders telling them what to do.
Hell they don't even like people from Oahu whom they view like the plague.
cracks plente from anahola to waimea

I defer to Kawakami
He has to live there with his botoboto t-shirt face mask on to aloha you.

My buddy used to have a house in Anahola.
Beautiful stretch of beach and river. The locals were all really cool to us.
Will never forget Titus bringing over a bag of Opihi and giving the kids surf lessons out front.
Good times.

Spent a month (February) on Kauai 13 years ago. Stayed in a house near the paddle out entry to Middles.

Surfed a bunch and was treated well by most everyone. We did roll up (in our rental minivan) to some locals only spot and was politely informed of the fact that we weren’t going to be surfing there.

Also had trunks, wetsuit tops, leashes, towels stolen from the house.

Other than that it was a great time.
