Hawaii Governor David Ige announced it would reopen the state to visitors starting October 15.

Travelers who test negative immediately prior to arrival will be exempt from the current 14-day quarantine.

The news was announced by the governor on Wednesday.

Travelers to the islands will have to take a coronavirus test within 72 hours of their flights’ arrival time.  Pharmacy chain CVS and healthcare provider Kaiser Permanente will conduct the tests as part of an agreement with the state government.

The program resembles one that was announced in June with an August 1 start date.  That program was put on hold as cases both on the mainland and in Hawaii spiked.
