Alexandria Nominated For Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Cities

ALEXANDRIA, VA — Alexandria is no stranger to travel destination rankings, as it has again made the list of Condé Nast Traveler’s Best Small Cities. Now the city is nominated for Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Cities category.

Visit Alexandria leverages national rankings to promote the city as a destination amid COVID-19 pandemic recovery.

Travel, Leisure Stocks Could Be Consumer Cyclical Value Ideas

As the Omicron strain of the coronavirus pandemic spreads at a seemingly unrelenting pace, some investors are growing apprehensive regarding travel and leisure equities.

The group is “trading at a median 3% premium to our fair value estimates.

Hawaii’s Safe Travels Form No Longer Required for Domestic Travelers

Hawaii is eliminating the need for domestic travelers to fill out an online health form prior to arrival, making it a little easier to visit the islands going forward.

As of this week, travelers heading to Hawaii from another U.S. state or territory are no longer required to fill out the State of Hawai’i Travel and Health Form as part of the state’s Safe Travels program, according to Hawaii’s COVID-19 website. Previously, the form would need to be filled out 24 hours before departure in order to receive a QR code through email, which would be used at the airport to verify a passenger’s Safe Travels Hawai’i information.

Hawaii will still allow domestic travelers to visit quarantine-free if they show proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test.

In addition to eliminating the health form, Hawaii also shortened its isolation and quarantine policies this week to be more
