Hawaiian vacation? Would you wear a tracking bracelet
If you don’t mind wearing a wrist monitoring bracelet (and paying for that privilege), have we got the postcard-perfect vacation for you.
The Hawaiian Island of Kauai has received permission to create “resort bubbles,” that officially kick off today. Hawaiian Governor David Ige first approved the resort bubble concept back in September, but the details surrounding implementation weren’t fully ironed out, approved and launched until now.
The program called an “enhanced movement quarantine,” was approved by Kauai Mayor Derek Kawakami on Dec. 30 and is distinctly different than the state’s pre-travel testing program that is in effect on the other islands. That program has allowed travelers to bypass an otherwise mandatory 10-day quarantine with a negative COVID-19 test from an approved provider taken with 72 hours of departure to the islands.
