I checked out the link in the opening post and found this disturbing account:
"A couple arriving on Mauii from Indiana flew directly to Maui on March 2. Both became sick and visited urgent care facilities but did not reveal that they had previously been in close contact with a COVID-19 positive patient.
The man and woman, both with symptoms, flew to Kauai on Hawaiian Airlines 149 on March 8 and stayed in the Kaua'i Marriott Resort. The next day, one went to another urgent care clinic and was given antibiotics.
On March 12, the same patient visited the Wilcox Medical Center and it was there that the couple disclosed their previous close contact with the coronavirus case.
Three health care workers who came into contact with the couple did not have appropriate personal protection gear and have been kept off the job while self-isolating in case they were exposed to the virus."
This is exactly why we canceled our trip that was supposed to start on Monday. We are not ill at this time, but I did not want to be the person unknowingly bringing the virus with me, nor did I want to pick up the virus on a crowded plane. I did not want to worry about having to self-isolate in any of the places rented to us. Our travel protection policy won't pay for our canceled lodging or any disruption caused by potential quarantine or self-isolation, but we chose to lose cash rather than put ourselves or anyone else at risk. Thankfully, the owners renting to us have offered to reimburse at least some of our payments. We very much appreciate their understanding and fair practice.
I hope the exposed health care workers and everyone else on Kauai will be safe and healthy.
