Travelers arrive in Hawaii after COVID pre-testing
Thousands of travelers are arriving in Hawaii following the launch of pre-travel COVID-19 testing program that allows travelers to come to the islands without quarantining for two weeks if they could produce a negative coronavirus test.
the first flight that came in, which was 123 people passed here in about 30 minutes. There was no conflict. A few people who had not known that we had a quarantine still in effect, understood when it was explained to them that there was a test that they should have gotten if they wanted to avoid quarantine. But they accepted it. We've all had Thio learn to live with Kobe 19. I do believe that this is an important milestone for all of us as we move forward in reviving our economy and open the test in front of them and then spit in the tube and you do through zoom a zoom meeting, they watch you, then you seal it up and mail it off. And it was gone the next day and got the results of the next day. So it was pretty fairly fast. E feel pretty safe. I do feel pretty safe. Every I know everybody like their tests are temperature. They feel pretty safe about it. I think it's a good thing for this day we needed this. Yeah, I work in the tourism industry and we need customer. We need toys. I am worry about it. But I just hope that you know, if we have a balance that you know, we all wear masks and way keep a distance.
