Natalie (Anela) Rea (11) co-president of the Laulea Club is individually packing candy bags to help stop the spread of germs. With COVID-19 still affecting club meetings, members of Laulea have to make sure to follow the necessary precautions for snacks and in-person activities. The individually bagged candies will be distributed among students to enjoy at home. During meetings, students have to wear their masks at all times, sign in, and sit in their assigned spot to have a clear tracking system. Photo and caption by Lin Meyers.

A sign in the bakery section of the Hawaii Kai Towne Center Safeway informs customers of a lack of donuts due to a supply shortage on Tuesday, Oct. 6. According to the New York Post, there are a record 62 ships backed up at ports in Los Angeles and Long Beach, California, due to increasing cargo loads, labor shortages, and COVID-19 safety precautions that slow the handling of each ship. Hawaii News Now predicts that we will continue to see the effects of these supply shortages in the next several weeks. Photo and caption by Lily Washburn.

An electronic road sign spreads the message of Covid-19, cautioning “No large gatherings”  at the intersection of Kalakaua and Monsarrat Avenues. The sign reminds people not to have large gatherings. It alternates through three other messages: “Stop the spread,” “Do your part,” and “Violators will be cited.” During the Covid-19 pandemic, social gatherings on Oahu have been limited to 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors. According to KHON 2, Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi extended the suspension of large gatherings. The suspension started on Sept. 22, but Blangiardi extended it until Oct. 19. To stay safe, and prevent the risk of case spikes, remember to avoid large gatherings. Photo by Eleni Cheng 2021.

Bailey Kwon (11): “A pro for me would be the accessibility. You don’t have to worry so much supplies-wise like packing a bag, packing a bag for school. A con is a lot of teachers doubled the work since were home all the time so you’re hardly ever able to take a break for yourself. Youre always doing school 24/7.”
