Hawaii will lift restrictions for vaccinated US travelers on July 8
Honolulu, Hawaii — Hawaii will lift quarantine and pre-travel testing requirements for domestic travelers from the mainland who can show proof of receiving a COVID-19 vaccination early next month, Gov. David Ige said Thursday.
The governor also announced he would ease restrictions on social gatherings and restaurants.
In a move designed to let businesses prepare for the change, Ige set a firm date of July 8 for the changes.
The changes come as Hawaii’s number of new COVID-19 cases drops and the rate of people who have been vaccinated statewide inches toward 60%. The state’s pandemic curve meanwhile has flattened to an average of 39 new cases per day, compared to a peak of more than 300 new cases per day last summer.
