Images of terrified protesters fleeing police and gunfire have shaken one of Mexico’s top beach resorts and dealt another blow to a tourism industry already reeling from the coronavirus pandemic.

The crackdown on Monday in front of Cancun city hall, where hundreds were demonstrating against the murder of a local woman, sparked national outcry and protests in Mexico City.

Hawaii extends travel restrictions


By: KTNV StaffPosted at 6:50 AM, Jul 14, 2020  and last updated 9:24 AM, Jul 14, 2020

The state of Hawaii is extending its restrictions to out-of-state visitors. 

Hawaii Gov. David Ige issued a mandatory 14-day quarantine for all arriving passengers, which applies to anyone who arrived after March 26.

Beginning Sept.1, the governor says anyone arriving in Hawaii will need a valid COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to their trip – and show proof of a negative result – to avoid 14-day quarantine.

The islands are reporting around 1,200 cases.

By Bruce Haring

Even as Disney World reopens and the Florida state government was being pushed to host in-person classes for the fall school semester, the Sunshine State is setting new records for COVID-19 cases.

The Florida Department of Health reported 15,299 new coronavirus cases Sunday. That’s the highest total for any state since the pandemic started. Florida holds the dubious record for second-highest as well, coming in with 11, 434 new cases on July 4, per Johns Hopkins University.Florida’s test positivity rate is a whopping 19.60%, Johns Hopkins said.Florida Rep.

‘Don’t Come’: Hawaii Enforces Strict Lockdown Measures


 Ryan Beene and Ari Natter

Venturing out of a hotel room in Hawaii right now might land you in handcuffs.

Just ask one of the roughly 20 people who’ve been arrested for violating Governor David Ige’s two-week quarantine imposed on all who arrive in the state or travel between its islands.

Hundreds more have been arrested or issued citations for violating other aspects of the state’s emergency orders to combat the coronavirus, which are among the nation’s strictest and have helped to drive down the rate of infection to the second lowest in the country.

State parks and Hawaii’s famous beaches have been closed. Hotels are issuing single-use keys, forcing quarantined guests who leave their rooms to go to the front desk and explain why. Airlines have been encouraged to suspend incoming flights. The state’s visitors bureau has asked media organizations to “refrain from publishing any stories about Hawaii that might encourage people to travel to the islands.”

Like many cities across the world, Honolulu came to an eerie standstill this weekend as the coronavirus pandemic spread throughout the islands. But Hawaii officials went beyond the standard stay-at-home orders and effectively flipped the switch on the state’s tourism-fueled economic engine in a bid to slow the spread of the virus. As of Thursday, anyone arriving in Hawaii must undergo a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine. The unprecedented move dramatically reduced the number of people on beaches, in city parks and on country roads where many people rely on tourism to pay for the high cost of living in Hawaii.

Packed United flight leaves passengers ‘scared,’ ‘shocked’ amid fears of the coronavirus


Chris Woodyard and Dawn Gilbertson, USA TODAYUSA TODAYMay 10, 2020, 8:27 PM CDT

A photo of a crowded flight posted on Twitter by a cardiologist returning from the New York City area may hint at the difficulties of social distancing as air travel picks up again.

Dr. Ethan Weiss tweeted a photo Saturday showing what appears to be a full United Airlines flight from Newark, New Jersey, to San Francisco. Though passengers are wearing masks, he said the crowded cabin runs counter to United’s assurances that it would leave middle seats empty in order to promote social distancing to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
