Yesterday, March 2, Kauai’s mayor, Derek Kawakami, introduced that Kauai is in search of the governor’s approval to rejoin the state’s Protected Travels program beginning April 5, 2021. You’ll be able to learn the total announcement here.
This proposed rule to rejoin the state’s Protected Travels program is known as Rule 25. Right here’s a summation of it from the announcement:
If Rule 25 is accredited, Trans-Pacific vacationers could be exempt from Hawai‘i’s 10-day journey quarantine beginning April 5, 2021 by collaborating within the state’s Protected Travels pre-travel testing program. If accredited, it might not be vital for out-of-state guests to remain in a Resort Bubble or spend time on one other Hawaiian island earlier than touring to Kaua‘i with a purpose to obtain a quarantine exemption.
If accredited, starting April 5 vacationers may keep away from quarantine by taking the next steps:
• Add destructive take a look at outcomes to your Protected Travels account earlier than touring to Hawai‘i (NOTE: Vacationers who arrive with out importing the destructive take a look at end result is not going to be accepted).
Extra testing after arrival is not going to be obligatory, however inspired. Within the announcement, there’s an inventory of ten Kauai resorts who’ve dedicated to help optionally available post-travel testing.
We’ll be expecting any bulletins for the approval of Kauai’s proposed Rule 25. Within the meantime, for additional insights on this matter, take a look at these articles:
