Hawai‘i’s Interisland Travel Quarantine Will End on Tuesday, June 16
State officials say they are ramping up airport screenings and other safety procedures.
Gov. David Ige announced today that the 14-day mandatory quarantine for interisland travelers will be lifted on June 16. Ige says this will help local residents reconnect with their families and is another step in reopening Hawai‘i’s economy.
In addition to ramping up thermo screenings and temperature checks, officials say interisland travelers will need to fill out a new form, which asks about health information and where they’re staying. Procedures include taking travelers’ temperatures and turning away anyone whose temperature is 100.4 degrees or higher and more testing for anyone with symptoms. If someone travels within the state before June 16, they will still be required to quarantine for the entire 14 days.
Ige will announce plans for Mainland and international travel in about a week.
Lt. Gov. Josh Green said state officials decided to lift the interisland quarantine because of the low daily case counts—no new cases were reported today—and that there have been no COVID-19 deaths in the past four weeks.
