Per an announcement by Governor Age and his team on Tuesday, an overview of which can be found HERE in an article from West Hawaii Today, as of August 1, 2020, the state will start allowing those able to provide a negative Covid-19 test to skip the current mandatory 14-day quarantine, which is currently in place for all visitors coming in to the state of until July 31, 2020, regardless of any test results.
However, this screening system is still being worked out, and it is possible that this will be postponed or revoked should cases begin to spike, so it is wise to consider all possibilities if you are planning on traveling to Hawaii for your wedding in August or even September.
Please also note that public gatherings are also still limited to 10 people total - which means that you, your guests and any of us providing services for your wedding would have to be considered in that number. They have not announced when this restriction will be lifted or this number will increase.
If you have a wedding scheduled with me and you'd like to discuss your options if these restrictions are still in place, please send me and email and we'll set a time to chat!
Rest assured, I have protections now in place in any new agreements, as well as an addendum to be added to any previously signed agreements, to allow for postponement and reschedule if necessary.
Please see my most recent BLOG POST for answers to common FAQs for brides during the time of the pandemic, and stay tuned to this page for updates as they come out from the state!
