An arrest warrant has been issued for an Oak Lawn woman who failed to appear for her first court date after allegedly using a phony COVID-19 vaccination card that misspelled Moderna to get into Hawaii for a vacation without quarantining.
Chloe Mrozak, 24, faces a misdemeanor charge for violating the state’s coronavirus emergency proclamation, which requires visitors to show proof of full vaccination or a negative test.
Judge Karin Holma said she would issue a $500 warrant for Mrozak’s arrest after she failed to appear for Zoom hearing Wednesday morning.
Mrozak arrived at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport on Aug. 23 with a card claiming she received her first "Maderna" vaccine dose in Delaware from a National Guard member named "cpl wolf," and got a second dose administered by a "ssgt montey," photocopies of the alleged document show.
She made it through the screening before investigators determined her hotel and return flight information listed on her state-mandated trip record was bogus, authorities said.
Mrozak was arrested Aug. 28 when she arrived at the airport for her return flight home.
A judge initially set bail at $2,000 but Mrozak was later released on her own recognizance, according to court records.
