A pre-travel COVID-19 testing program for interisland flyers to bypass quarantine “could be the prelude” to the program for trans-Pacific flyers, set to begin Oct. 15, Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino said Monday afternoon.
There are a “few more details” to work out, but the programs are similar, Victorino said. He said county mayors and Gov. David Ige were discussing the pre-travel testing program for interisland flyers, and Victorino anticipated an announcement from the governor to come before the end of the week.
Currently, those flying to the Neighbor Islands need to quarantine for 14 days. Travelers to Oahu do not need to quarantine.
