With a crumbling economy and declining coronavirus cases, Hawaii cant afford to see any more vacationers declining to visit the island due to vaccine mandates.
“The state of Hawaii has reversed course and will not be mandating that travelers to the islands show proof of a booster shot in order to be considered fully vaccinated against the coronavirus,” reports Breitbart News.
“Hawaii Democrat Governor David Ige said the decision not to mandate boosters stemmed from the declining coronavirus case count,” reported Breitbart News.
“There has been much speculation about booster requirements for travelers arriving in Hawaiʻi. I want to emphasize that the program remains unchanged at this time and boosters will not be required for up-to-date status,” Ige said.
“All four county mayors, the DOH, and visitor industry leaders have coordinated closely in making this decision – which took into account declining COVID-19 case counts and hospitalizations, as well as Hawaiʻi’s robust vaccination rate,” Ige added.
“Last month, it was reported that Hawaii would be requiring booster shots for travelers to the islands. Under the state’s current ‘Safe Travels’ program, visitors to the state must quarantine for five days or test negative for the coronavirus within one day of travel if they are not fully vaccinated, which previously meant two doses of the Pfizer/Moderna vaccines or one dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The proposed update would have included booster shots in order for people to skip quarantine,” reports Breitbart News.
