Starting Aug. 1, out-of-state visitors to Hawaii who can prove they have tested negative for Covid-19 will not be subject to the state’s 14-day self-quarantine, Gov. David Ige said.

Visitors seeking the exemption must produce results of an FDA-approved test taken within 72 hours before arriving in Hawaii. The 14-day mandatory self-quarantine for out-of-state visitors, which was recently extended to July 31,  will remain in effect for those who have not been tested. 

“This multi-layered, pre-travel testing and screening process allows travelers an alternative to the 14-day travel quarantine in a way that protects the health and safety of our [residents] and visitors,” Ige said. “Now is the time to work together to ensure that our local businesses can safely reopen to incoming travelers.”
