Hawai’i is at the pinnacle of many travel bucket lists, but the past two years have been fraught for the Aloha State’s visitor industry, as industry and government leaders struggle to find the balance between protecting the state’s population from COVID-19 and maintaining tourism – the primary driver of Hawai’i’s economy.
There’s cautious optimism going into 2022, as Hawai’i’s entry requirements change with the nature of the pandemic, and as the screening processes put in place to slow the spread of COVID-19 begin to mature.
