Kokua Line: What happens to my travel exception if my vaccine card is too messy to read?

Arhaq

Question: When I tried to link my vaccine card in Safe Travels, I got a message that the card was uploaded but could not be verified. When I got my shots, they wrote out the card by hand — it’s pretty messy, I could barely make out the vaccine lot numbers — and they didn’t write my name exactly as it appears on my ID. Is this going to be a big problem when I come home?

Answer: Probably not, assuming that your vaccination exception is valid. Screeners will manually review your vaccination card after you land in Hawaii —

Arhaq

It’s finally official: A pre-test or proof of vaccine is no longer needed for interisland travel in Hawaii, marking another huge step in the state’s COVID-19 recovery.

Previously, travelers moving between islands without a pre-test or proof of vaccine would have to quarantine for 10-14 days.

New Wild Rice Retreat offers more soothing travel experience in Bayfield, Wis.

Arhaq

Inside my tiny house-like lodging, I was ready to read the novel I’d thrown into my suitcase. Freshly steeped turmeric-ginger tea sat within reach. The chair I lounged in was comfortable, but not slouchy enough to bring on a nap. A floor lamp aimed light at the pages.

Still, I got through only one paragraph.

The chair was angled toward a window that took up nearly the entire back wall, and the scene outside was just a little too lovely for me to bury my head in a book. Instead, I watched wrens dart among the trees and fresh leaves
