Comprehensive Overview, With Questions and Answers:

https://www.gohawaii.com/special-alerts-information


CURRENT POLICIES
  • The mandatory 10-day quarantine is required for all passengers (visitors and returning residents) arriving into the state of Hawaii.
  • Additionally, operations, including peer-to-peer platforms or sharing services, may not rent vehicles to any person who is subject to a 10-day traveler quarantine order unless an exemption is granted.
  • Travelers flying into Hawaii are required to register personal information into the Safe Travels application; the information will be used to aid officials in contacting travelers via phone, email, and SMS. It does *not* currently enable GPS-tracking of travelers via their mobile devices.
  • Travelers are exempt from the mandatory 10-day quarantine if testing is completed no more than 72 hours before the departure time of the final leg of your flight to Hawai‘i with proof of a negative result.
    • The state of Hawai‘i will ONLY accept Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) from a certified Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) lab test results from TRUSTED TESTING AND TRAVEL PARTNERS. A negative COVID-19 test result is required prior to departure to avoid quarantine in Hawai‘i.
    • If results are not available by time of arrival, quarantine necessary until test results received.
    • All travelers (returning residents and visitors) of all ages subject to pre-test requirement.
    • Individuals are responsible for testing costs.
    • Travelers (returning residents and visitors) are not able to test upon arrival in Hawaii because this is a pre-travel testing program.
    • No commercial COVID-19 NAAT testing will be provided upon arrival at the airport. Travelers without the pre-test will be in quarantine.

//TOPIC CHECK - STAY ON TOPIC//

Aloha - as a reminder to all, FT's rules specifically state: "FlyerTalk exists for the discussion of frequent flyer programs and the related travel experience. With the exception of the few areas specifically designated for the discussion of other topics, confine your comments as closely as possible to these topic areas and to the topic of the thread and forum in which you are posting." FlyinHawaiian and I recognize that it is easy to intertwine political commentary with the policies advanced by politicians that affect travel to Hawaii. However, we ask that you keep in mind the nature of this Hawaii forum and focus your attention on the policies and their impact on travel to/from/within Hawaii. Commentary about Hawaii's politicians are off-topic, belong in the OMNI forum, and will be deleted if posted on this thread. We ask for your kokua and cooperation. If you have any questions, please let us know.

Mahalo,

They have a new procedure, you have to turn the form in to the COVID-19 screener in person.

You can no longer just check None of the Above, sign it and turn it into the FA.

Monday's (04/06/20) passenger arrival data (from: Big Island Video News Serving Hawaii County):

Yesterday, 513 people arrived in Hawaii including 133 visitors and 182 residents. In comparison, during this same time last year, nearly 30,000 passengers arrived in Hawaii daily, including residents and visitors. The state’s 14-day mandatory self-quarantine started on March 26th for all passengers arriving in Hawaii from out of state. The order was expanded on April 1st to include interisland travelers. This table shows the number of people who arrived by air from out of state yesterday and does not include interisland travel.

Decrease in flights, increase in visitors...

One line reads:Sources said workers were banned from wearing personal protective equipment unless caring for coronavirus patients, leaving them open to infection. Is that normal in hospitals given the Covid-19 virus? Are they afraid the patients might freak out?

I've heard from friends in hospitals elsewhere it was to conserve PPE due to the shortage. Basically, unless you are in direct contact with a known case we don't want to "waste" supplies.

The article says these are not "new" cases meaning what - they have known for a while these folks have the virus but just now admitting it publicly? Will not surprise me when they say most of the staff test positive for the virus.

And what the world knows now is that unless everyone has been tested there is no way of knowing who has it or not and those people who have it but do not know it (no or only mild symptoms) are running around spreading it. If Hawaii wants to stop the spread they need to have everyone wearing masks now. If they keep waiting they are guaranteeing wide-spread infection.

Of course, the test is only accurate for up to the moment of the test - the person can become infected at any moment after the test....

Over reacting doesn’t help things. I’m essential, but feel like I’m living in The Soviet Union at the moment. Papers please, we need to know what you are doing.

Incredible way to wreck the economy even though we are doing ok.

Idiot from Virginia gets on a plane to HNL to see her friend who lives in Aiea and then Bonnie and Clyde hop on a WN flight to LIH (how's those quarantine protocols working for you, folks). The Kaua`i Police Department are on the ball and catch them heading the wrong way from the airport from where they said they would be staying and then, after warning them for the second time, find them shopping at the Foodland in Princeville.

For those who are still traveling to/within Hawaii (hopefully for an essential purpose, otherwise, please stay away for now), the State now has a website it uses that you may want to complete prior to arrival to register your quarantine:

It will be interesting to see which countries / states open too soon, which ones do things rationally (TBD), and which stay closed for too long and drive their economies further into the toilet. I'm betting some countries fall in the last group and kill their tourism industry and wind up in a long lasting depression.

Saturday's (04/11/20) passenger arrival data (from: Big Island Video News):

Yesterday, 404 people arrived in Hawaii including 89 visitors and 147 residents. In comparison, during this same time last year, nearly 30,000 passengers arrived in Hawaii daily, including residents and visitors. The state’s mandatory 14-day self-quarantine started on March 26th for all passengers arriving in Hawaii from out of state. The quarantine order was expanded on April 1st to include interisland travelers. This table shows the number of people who arrived by air from out of state yesterday and does not include interisland travel.


And some interisland data:

The Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism reported the following interisland travel numbers for April 7, 2020. Please note reporting is delayed due to processing of visitor arrival forms, the state says.

Have you been caught up in a roadblock yet?

The numbers they are posting over the weekend: 6 people cited for no insurance, 1 person cited for violating the ordinance. Pretty ridiculous use of resources IMO.
