Gov. David Ige today announced eight “trusted testing partners” for interisland travel to Kauai and Maui counties.
Passengers flying from within Hawaii to Maui or Kauai may bypass the mandatory 14-day quarantine if they take an FDA-authorized Nucleic Acid Amplification Test from the certified CLIA lab no earlier than 72 hours prior to departure and receive a negative result.
Travelers must register on and upload their coronavirus test results to the Safe Travels Hawaii account and must have the test result with them upon arrival so airport screeners can review the result, according to a news release from the governor’s office.
Those who choose not to take a pre-travel test or who do not arrive with a negative test from a trusted testing or travel partner will be subject to the 14-day inter-county quarantine, or may seek an exemption from the county they are traveling to.
Maui Mayor Michael Victorino on Friday announced that Maui residents leaving for same-day or overnight medical purposes on another island may be exempt from the testing requirement with appropriate documentation.
