People in Hawaii can go outside without a mask!

Yay - we have turned a corner and it feels great.  Whether you're vaccinated or not, you can take off the face mask when outdoors, providing it's not a crowded event that is.  Our sunny and breezy weather makes for a perfect case of not needing that extra protection from the Corona virus.

Here's a link to the Maui News update ...

Of course, some will still choose to wear the mask, and that's OK.  I really think the masks will be here to stay and I won't mind using one when the time is right.  But for now, take off that mask and smell the beautiful flowers of Maui!

That is indeed great news!  I never imagined that our government would have to once again give us permission to breathe, haha.

Georgie,

A dear friend is going to be in Hawaii for two weeks with his family.  They are all vaccinated.  He tells me that they all have to also have a negative Covid test 3 days prior to boarding the plane...is that still in effect?  A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel Hawaii is only recognizing those who are vaccinated in HI at this time - due to the ease of having that database.  They aim to expand and allow others, but of course it's about the logistics and will take time to set it up.  So until then the pre-travel rules are still in place.  Here in HI we appreciate that visitors understand how fragile our hospital system is, especially on the neighbor islands.

Those are gorgeous flowers! During my trips to Hawaii, the air was always scented with fruit and flowers. Loved it!

We have never had a mask mandate in Florida. I thank God each day for our governor.

How wonderful is that, Georgie? We threw away our masks a few weeks ago here in the Carolinas and it feels wonderful!

Hi Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - I have postponed our vacation time in Maui for the last two years because of the restrictions.  I have mixed feeling about 2022.  In Sedona, we have not had to wear masks outside ever, unless we couldn't "socially distance"... (which was never haha).  Now, we don't have to wear masks inside either.  

I want to bring my whole family to Maui in 2022 and not sure what to do?  Most of us want to put this mask thing behind us.

Georgie,

Thank you for the information.  Our friend has it under control, and I certainly did not know about the fragility of the islands hospital system.  A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel Oahu has it covered, but Maui has always been lacking when it comes to some of the serious things that a hospital can provide.  We can be flown to Oahu when needed, but it's not very convenient.

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - the Plumeria blooms are one of the most beautiful on earth! I wish you and Hawaii continuous beauty and protection from the virus and any further dangers. Isn't it interesting to read places like Melbourne, FL and Sedona AZ never had to mask up? I did not know that. TX was (I believe) the first state to allow the masks to come off but business owners could keep them in place, if they felt they had to. That pandemic was and still is such a mystery and caused so much economic damage and hardship (physically, emotionally, and financially). Be safe Georgie and enjoy being without a mask.
