Hawaii Governor David Ige announced today that certain travelers fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will not need to present negative coronavirus tests prior to their Aloha State-bound flights.
The order applies to those based in other US states or territories. The change goes into effect July 8.
(Folks who booked a Hawaii mileage run — this certainly makes things easier, doesn’t it?)
Beginning July 8, Hawaiʻi will accept vaccination records from other states and US territories to bypass quarantine/pre-travel testing. Social gatherings will increase to 25 indoors and 75 outdoors statewide. Restaurants can also increase to 75% capacity. pic.twitter.com/hL4ETORVVQ

USA Today notes that travelers “will need to show their vaccine card as well as upload it to the state’s Safe Travels website.”
You’re out of luck if you’re traveling to Hawaii prior to July 8. Sorry.
But this is certainly welcome news for many people!
That’s all the information we know right now.
