Sumary of Editorial: Restrictions loom; get vaccinated now:

  • Let’s be clear here: This week’s additional measures for proof of COVID-19 vaccination or testing to enter dining or recreational establishments are meant to prevent a more-draconian, statewide lockdown.
  • They are meant to keep as many of us as healthy as possible, while allowing workers to work, businesses to stay open and patrons to responsibly patronize their favorite places.
  • Oahu launches its 60-day “Safe Access O‘ahu” program, which will require workers and patrons to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter businesses such as restaurants, bars, gyms, theaters and museums;
  • In an attempt to help businesses and customers with entry, the state just launched Hawaii’s SMART Health Card pass on Friday, allowing vaccination cards to be uploaded and shown digitally.
  • If it works as hoped, the voluntary SMART pass should ease some burden for businesses and patrons, using a QR code on a smart-phone that aims to make clearance more efficient.
  • But with merely a weekend given for businesses to upload a needed app to “read” the QR data and adapt, don’t expect this system to start smoothly.
  • Effective Monday, all government contractors and visitors entering state facilities must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination, or test negative at least weekly.
  • 16, all state and county workers get the COVID-19 vaccine or undergo weekly testing.
