It is controversial whether or not to participate in the program of Hawaii's islands (Naver Island) in Hawaii, which is just around the corner until full-scale tourism resumes.

From Thursday, October 15th, the state of Hawaii has introduced a "pre-test program" that exempts the 14-day self-isolation period by submitting a negative proof of PCR test performed within 72 hours before travel. , We are planning to start accepting travelers from outside the state.

On Tuesday, October 6, Harry Kim, the Big Island of Hawaii, said that in addition to pre-inspection, post-arrival inspection is required to visit the Big Island for 14 days of quarantine exemption. .. There are concerns about the spread of infections such as the cluster infection of the new corona that occurred on the Big Island of Hawaii last month, and Group Chief Kim believes that the safety of citizens is more important than the resumption of the economy.

On Monday, October 5, Hawaii's Governor Ige rejected the proposed post-arrival inspection program that Kauai's Mayor Kawakami had applied to the state.

Kauai has maintained a low infection rate (59 total infections) in Hawaii due to strict measures so far, and in order to maintain this state and resume tourism, after arriving in Hawaii The PCR test is essential, and he intends to continue negotiations with the Governor of Kauai.

Maui County (including Maui, Lanai and Molokai) has not commented on availability at this time.

In addition, the quarantine measures for travelers between Hawaii's islands will be enforced until the end of October, which hinders the exemption of travelers to neighboring islands in Hawaii.

Currently, Hawaii requires 14 days of quarantine for all travelers from Oahu to other islands. That is, if you're sightseeing on Maui or Kauai, you'll be granted a 14-day quarantine exemption if you get a negative pre-test certificate at a California airport and take a direct flight, but if you're via Oahu, that's it. Is not allowed.

The Governor of Ige said he would discuss these matters with the mayor and clarify them later this week.
