As Hawaii COVID-19 circumstances have been headed on their highest surge but, Governor Ige, requested guests and residents to reduce travel to and from Hawaii through October. Since then, case counts and hospitalizations have come down considerably. As such, Gov. Ige introduced that guests and residents are welcome to journey to and from the state beginning November 1, 2021.
Yesterday, at an occasion on Hawaii Island, Ige said, “Starting November 1st, we wish to invite and encourage fully-vaccinated guests and residents to journey for enterprise or leisure, trans-Pacific and inter-island.” (Source)
Whereas Ige’s assertion particularly welcomes vaccinated guests, no new journey rule adjustments have been introduced for Hawaii’s Safe Travels program. That program presently permits non-vaccinated guests to bypass quarantine by presenting a damaging pre-travel COVID-19 check.
