Making Hawaii Safe for Travel

I prepared this report in May.  As you can see, many of the recommendations which were not taken seriously at the time are now gaining or have gained consensus.  The 72 hour pre-travel testing is critical to reopening our visitor industry. We are not entering the era of “instant” tests, but the airlines must find a way to enforce the pre-travel testing so the plane is free of COVID-19; this can be done through pricing without violating anyone’s constitutional rights.  I.e. take a test to get a discount, without a test pay a premium and be tested upon arrival.   

In any case, here is the work product I laid out several months ago as a member of the House Select Committee on COVID-19.  Page 4 has the tasking and action items.
