Hawaii Governor David Ige encouraged potential tourists not to visit the islands amid a surge of coronavirus cases, saying it is “a risky time to be traveling right now.”

“I encourage everyone to restrict and curtail travel to Hawaii,” Ige said during a press conference on Monday. “It’s not a good time to travel to the islands.” 

Ige said that travel should be limited to “essential business activities only.” Visitors, he said, will not have the “typical” vacation that they would expect, as restaurant capacity has been restricted and rental vehicles are limited.https://www.facebook.com/v4.0/plugins/video.php?app_id=&channel=https%3A%2F%2Fstaticxx.facebook.com%2Fx%2Fconnect%2Fxd_arbiter%2F%3Fversion%3D46%23cb%3Df1c008830ce78fc%26domain%3Dwww.cbsnews.com%26is_canvas%3Dfalse%26origin%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.cbsnews.com%252Ffb6f581bf764c%26relation%3Dparent.parent&container_width=865&href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FGovernorDavidIge%2Fvideos%2F604814693845142&locale=en_US&sdk=joey
