The Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau on Wednesday said the state is preparing to welcome travelers starting Oct. 15, adding proof of a negative Covid-19 test from a trusted partner will enable visitors to avoid a 14-day quarantine period.

The state's approved testing partners are AFC Urgent Care, Bartell Drugs, Carbon Health, CityHealth Urgent Care, Color, CVS Health, Discover Health MD, Quest Diagnostics, Vault Health and Walgreens. The state will also accept results from partner Kaiser Permanente for members only, the bureau said.

Travel partners are Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines and Oakland International Airport, the bureau said.

The bureau also said new partners will be added in the near future.

The governor of Hawaii on March 31 ordered all persons traveling to and between islands in the state to self quarantine. Interisland travel restrictions were relaxed in August.
