Note that overseas arrivals to Hawaii will still be subject to US federal law, which requires all air travelers aged two and up to submit a negative Covid-19 test taken within one day of entering the US.
Additionally, all tourists aged 18 and above must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to fly into the country.
The countrywide indoor mask mandate is another restriction set to expire this week.
However, the Governor indicated that the CDC and the Department of Health continue to recommend the use while indoors for “certain populations.”
Masks will continue to be necessary at the airport and in some establishments. Individual businesses can also decide whether or not to demand masks.
“Hawaiʻi maintained its mask mandate and our consistency helped to keep COVID case numbers and hospitalizations as low as possible during the surge. It is also one of the reasons Hawaiʻi has the second lowest death rate in the country,” said Gov. Ige.
“We are watching disease activity closely across the state, the country, and globally, and we will adjust accordingly to keep our entire community healthy – from keiki to kupuna.”
