Once again, staff at the East Asian Observatory, send our thoughts out to our community across the world and hope you and your families are well and safe.
The Governor of Hawaii has announced a ‘stay-at-home’ order for the entire State, effective from Wednesday 25th of March, through to April 30th. We hope that this order will help us here in the islands to slow and minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus within our community. As you know, JCMT and EAO has been on operational hiatus since March 13th through to the end of March. In compliance with this order, we will be extending the hiatus until April 30th.
As we’ve mentioned before, all of our staff are now working from home, diligently and creatively, to continue to deliver you science support, data reduction assistance or anything else you need – so please continue to reach out to them.
We are committed members of this island community, and are glad we are doing what we can to help our families, friends and those most at risk in our community. Please take care of yourselves, and your families, and we thank you for your continued support.
Jessica on behalf of the EAO `ohana.
