HONOLULU (KHON2) — As omicron cases surge in Hawai’i and continue to follow us into the New Year, many businesses are temporarily closing and events are forced to reschedule.

Blue Note Hawaii was one of the first to postpone a big event when one of the members from the popular Hawai’i band The Green tested positive for the virus.
