Below is the updated list of approved pre-travel testing partners for the Covid-19 test. Those with a pre-travel 72 hour negative test do not have to quarantine for 14 days. Please always check with your local sources to confirm accuracy. Mahalo!
The Associated Press reported that about 8,000 people arrived in Hawaii on Thursday while Maui News reported 1,262 passengers arrived on Maui. For visitors arriving with Covid test clearances provided by “trusted partners” approved by the state pretty much breezed through, for those who didn’t get the needed results, unfortunately approximately 10 to 25 percent of passengers on each flight had tests from nontrusted partners. Moniz added that 5 percent of arrivals decided to forgo pre-travel testing and head straight to quarantine.
Mayor Victorino did state that they will work out the problems that occur in the next few days and will do their best to have things work out for the benefit of all. Many of the visitors stated they felt that with the way Maui has set up safety for our island’s health and theirs, this feels to them that this is the safest place to travel. We are taking the necessary steps to keep all healthy. Remember to wear masks and continue with social distancing to protect everyone. Mahalo Nui Loa!
