The testing program, which goes into effect on Oct. 15 for travelers age 5 and older, will allow travelers to bypass Hawaii's mandated 14-day quarantine with proof of a negative COVID-19 test. The test must be from a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certified laboratory and taken within 72 hours of the visitor's last leg of their trip.

 

Critics of the plan say that the testing program will not do enough to protect locals from possible cases of COVID-19. By not making the tests mandatory for all — some travelers may still opt for the two-week quarantine — travelers could unintentionally contract the virus.

Cuba to test visitors for coronavirus, limiting tourism to the keys.
