  • Are adults and minors required to complete pre‐travel testing?
  • Adults and minors five years of age and older who successfully complete a negative pre‐travel test will not be subject to the state's 14‐day quarantine program.
  • If my flight is delayed, will it impact the validity of my test results?
  • No.
  • What should I expect to happen at the airport when I arrive in Hawaii?
  • You will be asked to complete a multilayered screening process that includes a post‐arrival temperature check, completion of the Mandatory State of Hawaii Travel and Health Form and, for those with COVID‐19 symptoms or temperatures of 100.4 degrees F or higher, a secondary screening. Please allow yourself extra time to go through post‐arrival screening at the airport.
  • Can accommodations and car rental companies require me to show proof of not being subject to quarantine before agreeing to rent to me?
  • Yes. Per the State of Hawaii's emergency proclamation, accommodations may require proof of a negative test result in order to determine the type of service provided. Additionally, car rental companies are only permitted to rent to persons not subject to quarantine.
  • Can I travel between the islands after I arrive in Hawaii?
  • Yes, but there may be quarantine requirements. A partial inter‐county travel quarantine currently remains in effect through November 30, 2020 and could be extended. The quarantine requirement applies to all persons traveling to and between the islands of Kauai, Maui, and the island of Hawaii. It also does not apply to trans‐Pacific travelers connecting through Daniel K. Inouye International Airport on Oahu.
  • When am I required to wear a mask while in Hawaii? Can I be asked to leave a business for not wearing a mask?
  • Face coverings must be worn in compliance with Gov. David Ige's Fifteenth Proclamation Related to the COVID‐19 Emergency. Face coverings are defined as "a tightly woven fabric (without holes, vents, or valves) that is secured to the head with either ties or straps, or simply wrapped and tied around the wearer's nose and mouth." Face shields (plexiglass/clear plastic shields, etc.) are not permitted as substitutes for face coverings unless an exception to the face covering requirement applies. The proclamation requires that businesses refuse admission or service to anyone who fails to wear a face covering, unless an exemption applies. Exemptions to this requirement are listed in the Fifteenth Proclamation.
