How Hawaii Became a Rare Covid Success Story

While many states across the United States are still working to contain the coronavirus, Hawaii has managed to curb cases in part because of the state's geography, but moreso due to local government officials prioritizing guidance from state health specialists.

While there has been disagreement about which specific measures to prioritize over others, the proactive action as a whole has been successful.
