Enzo Dalmazzo, 43, and Daniela Dalmazzo, 31, of Miami, Florida, United States welcomed their first child in 2016. The couple’s second child was born in 2017.
On August 11, 2021, Enzo and Daniela flew to Oahu, Honolulu County, Hawaii, USA with their two children. According to the Hawaii Attorney General’s office, the couple tried to use fake new coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination cards to travel into the island for a family vacation.
To avoid quarantine when entering Hawaii, travelers should produce proof of COVID-19 vaccination as required by the Safe Travels rules of the state. Children under the age of 12 are not yet allowed to be inoculated with any of the three vaccines currently approved for emergency use in the U.S.
A Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent became suspicious about Enzo and Daniela’s COVID-19 vaccination cards particularly those of their children who were too young to have COVID-19 vaccination. Hawaii Attorney General’s office special agent Joe Logan told NBC Miami, “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.”
Both Enzo and Daniela were arrested in Oahu and they were each charged with one count of presenting false document. She was charged with two more counts for submitting fake documents for their two children.
The couple has been released. Enzo’s bail was set at $2,000 while Daniela’s bail was set at $6,000.
Also known as The Gathering Place, Oahu is the third largest island in Hawaii. The island is composed of two separate shield volcanoes namely the Waiʻanae and Koʻolau Ranges.
Among the popular beaches in Oahu are the Ala Moana beach, the Lanikai Beach and the Papailoa Beach. Also on the island are the Aloha Tower, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Polynesian Cultural Center, the Triple Crown of Surfing and Pearl Harbor.
