Actually, my advice is that because the Hawaiian "10 day quarantine" edict isn't an actual law, there is absolutely no reason to submit to COVID testing as it's neither state law nor is Southwest Airlines requiring it. So by opting out, the original poster is NOT breaking Southwest policy.

If caught, failure to comply might result in a fine of up to $5000 and a year in the pokey

In the unfortunate absence of the ability to block specific users who post here only incorrect and potentially damaging info, my recommendation is to always carefully consider the source, and look for info that has been confirmed as correct by other members.

 

Unfortunately, there will always be those who seek to create heat, instead of light.

I'm just curious whether or not there is a way to block a specific user's comments.

 

Thank you.
