All those traveling to Hawaii are now required to fill out the Safe Travels application prior to departure.
The application, which is a digital version of existing entry forms for arrivals to the state, will allow the Hawaii Department of Health to improve its contact tracing and health monitoring efforts. Visitors can gain access to the application by visiting travel.hawaii.gov/#/.
The screening process for arrivals to Hawaii also includes temperature checks and a voluntary secondary health screening for those who register a temperature above 100.4 degrees.
"I am pleased to launch this digital app, which will allow our travelers to provide their required health and travel information before they arrive at the airport," Gov. David Ige said in a statement. "It will also help us keep in contact with those who are required to be in quarantine. This is an important step in preparing to reopen our economy."
Travelers to Hawaii can access the application up to 24 hours prior to their departure and will be asked to share health and contact information. After completing the form, they will receive a QR code, which they must display upon landing at the airport. The application also will send quarantine check-in reminders via email and text.
The app was funded through state money received through the Cares Act, and new features are expected to be added as the state further develops its screening process.
