Governor David Ige is providing an update on the travel requirements for air transportation in Hawaiʻi.
Starting tomorrow, June 16, the state is lifting its inter-island travel quarantine.
Joining Gov. Ige is Dr. Bruce Anderson to talk about the new inter-island travel forms and procedures.
The interisland travel form can be found here.
The state Department of Health has created a new web page, where travelers can download the new mandatory interisland travel and health form prior to departure. This comes in advance of the reopening of interisland travel in Hawai‘i tomorrow (June 16).
Travelers are strongly encouraged to fill out the form prior to arrival at the airport, print it out, and bring it with them to the airport.
State officials are working toward an online form that will be linked to a QR code for expedited scanning and screening at the airport, but that option is not yet available.
Travelers are encouraged to get to the airport in plenty of time to clear health screenings, which includes submittal of the travel form and a thermal screen. Anyone who does not provide the form or has a temperature of greater than 100.4 degrees will not be allowed to fly. The health information is collected prior to TSA security screening.
Governor David Ige extended the mandatory 14-day quarantine for international and out-of-state arrivals into Hawaiʻi through July 31, 2020. “We will not reopen out-of-state travel before the end of June,” said Gov. Ige last week. His latest Ninth Supplemental Emergency Proclamation gives him the flexibility to reopen travel “when the state is ready.”
