No test, no flight
And so it begins at the Lihu‘e Airport, with increased arrivals to Kaua‘i from the mainland.
After reading about the few “hiccups” in this new process, one of them being travelers choosing to board a plane with no negative COVID test results, it is curious that this well-thought-out, elaborate system of opening up Hawai‘i would allow that.
Allowing passengers with no negative COVID results to board and travel to Hawai‘i, in this case Kaua‘i, is creating a bottleneck in the flow of pedestrian traffic in the airport after deplaning. Yet another place for close contact and possible disease transmission.
Suggestion: No COVID test results, no boarding a plane to Hawai‘i.
