People still have to quarantine for two weeks when they get there, pretty expensive vacation considering you'd probably be there for a month or more.

Based on TFA, I'm not sure that's true.  They didn't say explicitly that it *wouldn't* be required, but they mentioned testing in Japan.  I kind of got the idea, again, not explicitly stated, that Japan will test travelers and that they will be allowed in based on a negative test.

Hawaii without the crowds? Sounds too good to be true. Sign me up anyway.

I have to admit, that's what frustrates me the most about this crisis. In all of my grandparents' stories, they rose to the challenge of their generation and shot a bunch of Germans, and the crisis passed. But every time I do it now, nothing changes. What am I doing wrong?

Well let's see if we can help. How many Germans are you shooting currently?

Why? They have Okinawa. Less hassle. Less Murika.

Americans of Japanese descent live in Hawaii and go there to visit relatives.

TFA isn't really clear so I googled.
This article backs up what we're both saying, and if they test positive they can still come, but have to quarantine for 14:days. I'm trying to think of a reason that someone would choose to  quarantine in Hawaii instead of doing it at home until they test negative.

Me too. Lots of goats there too. I'm very much opposed to the American presence in Okinawa, by the way. Peace.

Dang. It's hard to keep up with everything about this virus and it's victims, it seemingly changes by the minute.

Yeah. They just announced they're shutting down bars again starting tomorrow. Most barely survived the first time around, some didn't.

In Pennsylvania the bars were closed again a couple/few weeks ago, unless they also sell food. Some owners are quite creative getting past that by selling one chicken finger or three onion rings etc. for a dollar. Restaurants can only be at 20% capacity. I used to work in the business, and more than a few bars and restaurants are never going to be able to open again.
I have some trepidation concerning who is going to scoop up those, and all manner of real estate and businesses.
The chasm separating the unfortunate from the wealthy is going to widen by a factor of 20 or more. Probably everywhere.
