14-Day Quarantine for Inter-island Travel to Be Lifted, June 16

Gov. David Ige announced the state will be lifting the 14-day quarantine requirement for interisland travelers, starting June 16.

Travelers may be prohibited from boarding a flight if they have an elevated temperature above
100.4 degrees, refuse to complete the mandatory form, or are actively on the 14-day quarantine list
preventing them from flying.

The Department of Transportation will require thermal screening at the airport for everyone
traveling inter-island. Additionally, all travelers will be required to fill out a new form asking for healthrelated information to assist the state in tracking and responding to new COVID-19 cases.

Health officials expect the number of new COVID-19 cases to rise once travel is re-opened. To
address the rise, the State Department of Health has begun the process of training 500 new contact
tracers, exceeding the recommended standards set by the Centers for Disease Control and is exploring other screening and testing procedures.
