June 4, 2020 – No. We Shouldn’t Be Flying

Governor Ige is getting crap for not saying when tourism in Hawaii will open back up. He doesn’t deserve this.

The vast majority of visitors to Hawaii will arrive in airplanes and at this moment there are no agreed-upon health standards for air travel to counter the spread of coronavirus or COVID-19. So I agree with the governor. We shouldn’t be restoring air travel.

I can’t help but think if we had a well-functioning federal government managing our country’s response to CORONAVIRUS-19 things would be going more smoothly.

Sure, we still might not know when visitors can fly to Hawaii. But we also wouldn’t be paralyzed by uncertainty and doubt.
