Limited Travel from Target Buyers

Travelers from Silicon Valley, Japan and Canada may be able to come to Hawaii with a valid COVID test, but they face a significant quarantine upon returning to their city/country.  Thus, what is considered to be a decent source of buyers is still limited due to travel restrictions.  In addition, Japan is providing incentives for residents to travel within the country, promoting its own tourist destinations and keeping its citizens within Japan’s own bubble.  It seems we are still going to depend upon a vaccine for a return of substantial numbers of out-of-state buyers.
