Hawaii has some of the lowest coronavirus infection and mortality rates in the U.S. As cases started to rise in March, the governor did something no other state can — effectively seal the borders.

American Samoa, a U.S. territory west of Hawaii, is the nation’s only jurisdiction with no cases to date. (AP Photo/Caleb Jones)
