5:31 pm
joins us now with what is and is not required, tom well, it's very interesting. now, if you haven't been traveling, you're going to find that once. very strict rules have been greatly relaxed. despite new scares, coming from the omicron covid variant traveling within and between lower 48 contiguous continental. u. s states is mostly simple at this point, a proof of vaccination or proof of negative test result is not required for domestic travel, so that takes care of the lower 48 states. but what about the other two? what about hawaii and alaska. the state of alaska has no special entry or travel testing requirements. but officials there say while there's no hard pre travel testing mandate. non vaccinated visitors should get tested for free when arriving for hawaii, fully vaccinated. domestic passengers no longer need pre travel testing or 10 day quarantines so long as they have
5:32 pm
been fully vaccinated in the united states, but be prepared to prove it long as you have your card that makes it a whole lot easier because they can look at it. go and go about your way so the card is a lot easier, but some people have it on their phones. i have a hard copy in my wallet and also have a picture in my phone. all passengers must complete forms via hawaii safe travels. website 24. hours before departure, you'll get an email with a qr code, which will be scanned by the airport in hawaii when you arrive unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated. us passengers must show a negative test. administered by one of the states listed trusted travel partners taken within three days before departure for hawaii, they should expect to pay for a test in the price range is really very depending on how fast the results are available without a test. you'll have to quarantine for a 10 day period. even if you go to a mask unfriendly state do not unmask
5:33 pm
until off airport property. the federal mandate applies both to airports and on board aircraft. so you do need to be wearing a facemask. anytime you're in any u. s airport and other modes of transit, such as rail and busses as well, their rules right. there are rules. you don't have to take the flight, right? and if new variants threatened public health well, then the rules will be enhanced. or we may see even more stringent things happen. tom baker, ktvu fox two news. they're constantly changing the guidelines and the mandates. tom if someone wants to plan a trip and wants to get information, all in one place, what's the best advice as to where to look? well i think if you're going to another state, you go to the state's website to its health department. they'll have a list of rules and regulations. for example, just because the rules are pretty uniform, justin traveling like if you go up to alaska, they're places where you cannot go or you cannot go without masks, the
5:34 pm
same in other states and other places, so you have to understand what the local rules are. and then what you do is you adjust yourself accordingly so that you do what you need to do on the plane at the airport and then whatever destination going to those rules very greatly, and in many cases, they don't exist at all. all right. tom baker reporting live for us tonight, tom. thanks. an investigation is underway tonight in union city after a shooting left a man dead . it happened last night. here where you see on the map and your 7th and 8th street right across from shorty garcia park. shots were fired about 8 45 last night, and police were at the scene, collecting evidence and investigating all throughout the morning, when officers arrived here at this scene, they found a man dead in the driver's seat of a car. the vehicle been struck multiple times by bullets, as well as the male inside the vehicle. they summoned medical aid to the scene, and he was pronounced dead on scene. police have yet to release more information about the victim or the suspected shooter. in this
