If you’re planning a trip to Hawaii, here’s what you need to know and what to expect if you want to visit during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Arriving U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents do not need to be fully vaccinated.
The CDC continues to recommend that everyone ages 2 and older wear a properly fitting mask on public transportation, but masks are no longer required on planes, trains, and other public transportation. .
Spectacular surf, sandy beaches, traditional Pacific culture and rugged volcanoes await visitors to Hawaii. Hawaii’s geographic location and proud history make it unlike any other place in the United States.
Fully vaccinated travelers are now allowed to enter the United States, including Hawaii.
Americans are still allowed to travel to Hawaii, regardless of whether they are vaccinated.
What are the restrictions?
Hawaii dropped its statewide mask mandate in indoor environments in late March. This order ended on the same day that Hawaii’s Safe Travel Program expired.
Since all restrictions on interstate travel have been lifted, no pre-travel inspection or quarantine is required for travel between the Hawaiian Islands.
What’s the Covid situation?
With about 340,700 cases and about 1,650 deaths reported as of Sept. 8, Hawaii has relatively low Covid per capita numbers compared to other US states. China maintained the strictest travel measures of any state.
What can visitors expect?
Statewide restrictions on social gatherings, restaurants, bars, gyms and other social establishments were lifted in December. All county-imposed restrictions have been lifted.
On Oahu, the Safe Access Oahu program, which required proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter businesses such as restaurants, bars and gyms, ended March 5.
With Covid-19 restrictions a thing of the past, Hawaii is poised to become a top destination for the rest of 2022 thanks to fresh service.
