Hawaii is making changes to its “Safe Travels” guidance and will soon require visitors to prove they’ve had a COVID booster shot in order to be considered “fully vaccinated” and avoid having to isolate for five days. Out-of-state visitors currently have to have two doses of the vaccine or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of travel in order to skip the quarantine.

Gov. David Ige says changes to travel requirements won’t go into effect for several weeks:

“We know that the community needs time to react to that, so we would have to provide at least two weeks for those who may not be up to date to go to have the opportunity to go and get vaccinated if they need to.”
