We wanted to let our valued association and community members know that we continue to monitor COVID-19 rules, regulations and updates. Destination Maui, Inc. remains in compliance with all State and County rulings related to COVID-19.
Hawaii’s Governor recently announced the state will not be lifting 14-day quarantine on September 1, 2020 for transpacific travelers, based on problematic COVID-19 numbers on the mainland, and increasing numbers in Hawaii. The quarantine is currently in effect until at least October 1, 2020.
In addition, rising COVID-19 cases on Oahu has prompted a partial shut down of inter-island travel.
The mandatory 14-day inter-island self-quarantine was reinstated, in part, on Tuesday, August 11. This applies to any person arriving to Kauai, Hawaii Island or Maui County (Maui, Molokai, Lanai), and traveling between these islands. It does not include inter-island travelers arriving on Oahu. All islands, except Oahu have maintained low numbers of Covid-19. However, since the 4th of July holiday, COVID-19 cases have spiked on Oahu.
The period of self-quarantine will begin immediately upon arrival, and last 14 days or the duration of the person’s stay on the island, whichever is shorter. We encourage you to read our many articles on helping associations prepare for reopening in our Learning Center.
Mahalo for your continued support and stay well,
