Hawaii was rocked last month by an outbreak of coronavirus, and it may be the first time in the United States in the modern era of mass tourism that it has forced the closure of the theater.
The state health department said that between December 1 and March 14, 2016, there were 10 cases of coronajuovirus in Hawaii, a figure that is likely an underestimate as the outbreak did not begin until January.
The average case rate for the entire state of 1,944 per day is a little over a dozen.
While many tourists are leaving for other destinations, many of the people staying in the island’s biggest hotels and motels have stayed home, which is why the state has been reporting a significant uptick in cases in recent weeks.
As of Monday, the number of coronas in the state had grown to more than 10,000.
There have been a number of high-profile cases, including one in which a man died after being exposed to an aerosol of an aerosaliter that was designed to be a nasal spray.
The man, whose name was not released, had been at a Holiday Inn, a popular tourist destination.
The outbreak has also led to a lockdown in Waikiki, which has been a popular place for those visiting the island for the past few years.
On Tuesday, the state said that a suspect in a fatal stabbing in Waianae, a town near Honolulu, had also been arrested in connection with the coronaviruses outbreak.
In the wake of the coronajutis outbreak, the governor has asked the Department of Health to convene a task force to examine the causes of the outbreak and recommend ways to prevent a similar outbreak in the future.
