PLEASE TEMPORARILY STOP ALL TRAVEL TO HAWAII AND SLOW THE SPREAD OF COVID-19!!

DUE TO MANY OF THESE INFECTIONS BEING "TRAVEL RELATED" WE NEED TO TEMPORARY STOP ALL TRAVEL AND HALT ALL AIRLINES AND ALL CRUISE SHIPS FROM ENTERING OUR STATE IMMEDIATELY!! Hawai'i is located in the middle of the pacific ocean, we should start looking at how we could use that to our advantage. If we keep our population numbers at Hawai'i residents only, we could potentially STOP the spread of COVID-19. And because the only way to get here is either through Cruise Ships and Airplanes, a temporary halt to ALL TRAVEL for non-residents into our islands will WORK to slow the spread! A 14-day quarantine should only be for Hawai'i residents coming home. All non resident tourist should be STOPPED before they even depart their location not enticing them with cheap airfares!! Although the visitor numbers are significantly lower than last year, tourism still continue to add more people to the Hawai'i community (http://dbedt.hawaii.gov/visitor/daily-passenger-counts/). Common sense teaches us we can't practice social distancing if the Hawai'i population keeps growing, all we are doing is giving COVID-19 more bodies to infect.  An immediate stop to ALL TRAVEL needs to be implemented NOW or unfortunately it will be too late i.e. hospitals over crowding, not enough PPE (personal protective equipment) or hundreds more of the Hawai'i population infected or even dying from this virus. On March 31st Mayor Kirk Caldwell drafted a letter to the President to push for a halt of all non-essential travel to the islands. However Governor Ige refuses to send the letter to President Trump. PLEASE KEEP SHARING THIS PETITION TO LET GOV. IGE KNOW THAT THIS TEMPORARY STOP TO ALL TRAVEL NEEDS TO BE IMPLEMENTED IMMEDIATELY!

Petition to Roy Cooper

NC Governor Cooper needs to suspend all rents & mortgages statewide during COVID19 crisis

Governor Cooper, Thank you for your hard work in this time of worldwide crisis. Millions of North Carolinians will be impacted by the COVID - 19 outbreak. People will be out of work and unable to make their housing payments. While evictions and foreclosures have been suspended nationwide for the time being, as President Trump stated in his COVID19 News Conference on 3/18/20, there should also be a total pause on rent and mortgage payments in our state ASAP. Since many have very little-0 income right now,  post-crisis demands of accrued payment debt(s) or penalties when the crisis has abated will cause widespread homelessness and suffering, not to mention undue overwhelming floods of people to Assistance Agencies. We are all suffering in the same manner: loss and lack of income with little-no relief, massive delays on Unemployment claims, plus limited number of CARES Package ("stimulus") payments to be received for each individual.  No matter how you look at it, each NC citizen's income has been slashed dramatically. With the statewide Stay-At-Home order in effect - "HOME" (shelter) being the operative word - it is imperative we protect the people in this time of need.  Govenor Cooper, we thank you for your leadership and ask that you suspend rent and mortgage payments while our state is under a State Of Emergency during this outbreak, with stipulation that there will be no penalties levied, or demands for accrued debt (interest, mortgage or rent payments) at any time after the crisis has abated.  This will protect ALL North Carolinians. We are all in this together. Thank you.
