Hawai’i to implement Pre-Travel Testing Option on Aug. 1, 2020 as Alternative to Quarantine
Governor David Ige announced on June 24th that as of Aug 1, 2020, Hawai’i would implement a pre-travel testing option for travelers to Hawai’i as an alternative to the 14-day travel quarantine.
Beginning Aug. 1, travelers who have a valid negative COVID-19 test prior to arriving will not be subject to the 14-day mandatory quarantine. The Quarantine will remain in place for those who chose not to get a pre-travel test.
This multi-layer screening process allows travelers to return and allows Hawai’i to continue to protect the health and safety of our community.
Temperature checks and screening will continue. Anyone with a temperature of over 100.4 degrees or if they have been experiencing other symptoms, will have to go through a secondary screening process upon arrival at the airport with trained health care staff. They will also at that time be offered a COVID-19 test to further evaluate their symptoms. Travelers will be required to fill our the state of Hawai’i health form which will be verified upon arrival.
