We are moving into the second week of the shutdown on Oahu. For those in the food service industry, it has been a long six months grappling with the uncertainty around this health and economic crisis. Planning has been pretty hard to do - most people hoped for a short turnaround but recovery is moving ever so slowly. So many businesses have shut down and many more are hanging by a thread and the supply chain has a taken a hit.

There's local research underway around COVID-19. We explore issues around diagnostic tests - one uses saliva, another nasal swabs. We also talk about vaccines, antibody tests and treatment. There is a need for plasma from those who have recovered from COVID-19. There are a number of clinical trials underway or about to get underway in the Islands and we talk about why there is a need to get a diverse pool of participants.

Today we’re talking about what needs to happen to return to school safely and ease the fears of families - whether they be of students, teachers or administrators. The academic year would have started this week but the decision was made to put it off until August 17th.
