Aloha,

As we all face this trying and unprecedented health crisis we want you to know that that our foremost concern is for the health and safety of every member of the community.

Here are some things we all can do now to help with this global pandemic:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and regularly with soap for at least 20 seconds.
  • Practice social distancing — avoid groups of more than 10, stay at home if at all possible.
  • Share the Aloha spirit with everyone, compassion and empathy can go a long way.

We each have the power to help slow transmission, protect our vulnerable ʻohana, and minimize the burden on our already strained healthcare system. To learn more about preventing the spread of COVID-19 please go to: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html

We ask that our members abide by the directions of the Governor, the Federal Government, and the CDC to help stop the spread of COVID-19, so that all of us remain safe and healthy.

As we move forward in a rapidly changing landscape, please know that we are working in concert with the members of the Executive Committee, County Chairs, other Party leaders, and the DNC to make the best decisions.

We ask for your patience as contingency planning continues. And we will keep you updated as changes occur.

Mahalo for your support and understanding.

Interim Party Chair
