Doctor Explains 5 Reasons You Should NOT Visit Hawaii

ETA: This video was made back in August when Hawaii was experiencing a huge surge in COVID cases. Now, our case count is down, our vaccination rate is up and the Governor is welcoming visitors effective November 1, 2021.

2:02 #1: ICU beds at largest hospitals are full, current COVID-19 counts and predicted numbers for the state
5:44 #2: Restaurant lines and surf lines are LONG
7:51 #3: Government restrictions in Hawaii
9:27 #4: Rental cars are expensive in Hawaii
10:46 #5: Muted spirit of aloha.

I love living in Hawaii and I love sharing my adopted state. But, even if you aren’t worried about the current COVID-19 numbers, these other reasons may influence your decision.
