Lt. Gov/Doctor Green. The evidence shows that the system is NOT working. If it were working, Kauai wouldn’t be seeing the spikes in COVID cases (due to incoming travelers) that it is seeing. In addition, with the last two positive cases, who reportedly boarded a plane knowing that their COVID tests were positive is more proof that not only is the system is not working, but Kauai cannot rely on the decency and integrity of Kauai bound travelers.
Wow Lt. Gov Green, you thought of this all on your own? Sure sounds like what Mayor Kawakami asked for and you guys denied him the ability to do this, your losing people’s peoples faith in your ability to lead.
