As of March 25, 2022, the state of Hawaii dropped all of its Covid-19 travel protocols and restrictions for domestic travelers, and has ended the State Travels Program. For international travelers flying directly into Hawaii from a foreign country, you will have to comply with the country and/or airline rules from that country into the U.S.
The state has also eliminated any remaining gathering restrictions and indoor masking requirements, although some places of business may still require customers to mask up upon entry, and you'll see that many folks are still masking up in indoor environments. The choice is now yours.
Although all restrictions have ended, the State remains particularly vulnerable to new strains, since we have been quite isolated during the pandemic, and this island, in particular, has very few hospitals; there are only 13 ICU beds total over the whole island, and a big outbreak would be catastrophic to the local community.
If you feel sick, have a cough or cold, or anything that may be contagious, please exercise care for those around you (as well as for yourself, of course). :)
Hawaii is counting on you to be responsible, and we are happy that you are freely able to come and enjoy our beautiful state!
If anything changes statewide or locally in terms of travel or other restrictions, I'll update this blog ASAP.
