Aloha Bruce is joined by his wife Yaling Fisher for a Hawaii Vacation Connection Podcast COVID-19 global pandemic update. There remain many questions about travel to Hawaii during this time, and our hosts discuss some of the concerns residents and visitors alike have. Bruce pushed back against the idea that Hawaii residents want tourists to stay away.
Bruce notes that, as he predicted, Hawaii’s travel ban has been extended to June 30. Yaling shares interesting numbers of visitor arrivals during the mandatory quarantine who have indicated that they plan to stay with “family and friends” for the 14-day quarantine. Our hosts point out that visitors have been violating quarantine and a large number of residents are catching them out. “You’ll be famous!” says Yaling.
Our hosts advocate for “Sharing Aloha”. Bruce discusses confusing remarks by Lt. Governor Josh Green about the reopening of Hawaii tourism. Bruce suggests that there is a “50-50 chance” that the travel ban will be lifted July 1. Stay tuned!
