Four new COVID-19 testing sites

The CDC recommends that people who are moderately to severely immunocompromised get three doses of the vaccine.
Feral chickens rampant on Oahu
The city of Honolulu has recently spent over $7,000 trapping feral chickens on the island. While the statewide feral chicken control program failed to advance this year, the city has taken matters into its own hands and initiated a pilot program. This program focuses on capturing and euthanizing these chickens. However, it is not without controversy, as residents have consistently complained about the nuisance caused by the chickens, including the noise and mess they create.
New crisis counseling assistance program
The Hawaii Department of Health has launched a new crisis counseling assistance program, Ku Makani, to help individuals and families cope with the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The service consists of crisis counseling sessions, peer support, and education in Spanish, Hawaiian, Tongan, Mandarin, and Palauan. Crisis counselors are bilingual and available on all major islands. The website has helpful tips for Hawaii residents who might be in need of help.
Minimum wage hike for 2028

A recent civic foundation report found a 600 percent increase in calls for help during the pandemic. However, the proposed hike is not without controversies. Some businesses have warned they’ll have to lay off employees or close up shop because of the new higher pay. A minimum wage hike would also boost the economy.
