HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii has announced it’s suspending all surfing competitions because of concerns over the coronavirus pandemic. The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported that the decision Tuesday means at least two World Surf League events will be canceled. Those are the Jaws Championships that was planned for January to March in Maui, and the Sunset Open that was scheduled for Jan. 19 to 28 on Oahu. The Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism said protecting health and safety drove the decision because it would be difficult to enforce crowd sizes on public property.
