A Florida couple vacationing said aloha to a jail cell upon entering Hawaii. Enzo, 43, and Daniela, 31, Dalmazzo, along with their two children, were stopped at a Honolulu airport when it was determined their COVID-19 vaccination cards had been falsified. The phony cards landed the couple behind bars, making for an unpleasant start to their vacation. Even in Hawaii, no one wants to be Lei’d in prison.

“The screener at the airport when they came through noticed an anomaly about the age of the children and the vaccine. And that’s how we got involved,” Special Agent Joe Logan of the Hawaii Attorney General’s Office told NBC Miami.
Listing their children’s birth years as 2016 and 2017 was the red flag the airport screener needed to question the vaccination cards. Currently, the vaccine is not yet available for anyone under the age of 12, making the Dalmazzo’s children too young to have been vaccinated.
The Miami couple was found to be in violation of Hawaii’s Safe Travel Program, which requires visitors to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test taken no more than 72 hours prior to entering the state. Failure to present a negative test or vaccination card results in a 10-day self-quarantine.
Enzo Dalmazzo was charged with one count of falsifying documents and Daniela was charged with three counts (for herself, and two children). The parents were jailed and eventually released after posting bail that totaled $8,000.
Should make for a good story at the next luau.
