The woman named Chloe Mrozak flew to Oahu, one of the islands of the US state of Hawaii, on Saturday, August 23. On arrival, all travelers must show evidence of vaccination or a negative test, otherwise they will be quarantined for 10 days. The woman thought she had found a clever way to maneuver around these rules.
The woman uploaded the fake document and was able to enjoy her vacation right away without having to be quarantined. But it wasn’t long before officials saw that her evidence was wrong.
The vaccination certificate stated that she was vaccinated in the US state of Delaware. However, officials were unable to find any official data. But that wasn’t the only questionable part of the evidence: the misspelling of the Moderna (“Maderna”) vaccine also set off alarm bells. The police have been notified.
Police were initially unable to locate Mrouzak because the hotel reservation she had provided upon her arrival was incorrect. But the 24-year-old was caught returning to the airport last weekend.
The woman was arrested and is currently in detention. She may be released from prison if she pays a bail of 2,000 euros.
