Robert: Canadians will soon be able to travel to Hawaii
Starting September 1st, “all trans-Pacific” travellers, including Canadians, will be allowed to travel to Hawaii without having to quarantine, provided you test negative for COVID-19 prior to arrival.
“Travelers arriving in Hawaii from out-of-state will have the option to get a valid COVID-19 test prior to their arrival, and show proof of a negative test result, to avoid the 14-day quarantine,” reads a statement from Hawaii’s Department of Transportation.
The statement goes on to explain that travellers must take a COVID-19 test within 72 hours of boarding a flight to Hawaii.
Canadians who are unable to provide a negative test result upon arrival, must quarantine for 14 days.
Likewise, once home, Canadian travellers will be required to self-isolate for 14 days.
Hawaii originally imposed a mandatory 14-day quarantine for all out-of-state travellers when the pandemic began. The state began easing restrictions recently in order to restart its tourism industry
