Weekly Update 10/29

Dear Members and Friends of JASH,

Governor David Ige announced during his press conference on Tuesday, October 27, that starting Friday, November 6, travelers from Japan may bypass the State of Hawaii’s mandatory 14-day quarantine if they take a COVID-19 test from a trusted testing partner in Japan. The test must be taken no earlier than 72 hours prior to departure and the test must be negative. This is an important step by the State in safely restarting trans-Pacific travel.

“Many of Hawaii’s residents trace their ancestry back to Japan, and welcoming our Japanese guests back to Hawaii is an important step in maintaining the close relationship between our two regions,” said Governor Ige, “We believe we have created the safest travel testing program in the country, and we are grateful to the Japanese government for assisting us in making our pre-travel testing program available to its residents.”
