Good news Trout Unlimited Chapter 403 members. Governor David Ige on Wednesday approved two changes to Kauai’s travel quarantine rules requested by Mayor Derek Kawakami, effective January 5, 2021. Basically, it allows inter-island travelers who have been in the State of Hawaii for more than three days to participate in the Safe Travels Pre-Travel Testing Program for quarantine exemptions.
Travelers flying to Kauai from Oahu, Maui County, or the Big Island of Hawaii, who have been in the State of Hawaii for more than 72 hours before departing for Kauai, can avoid quarantine by taking the following steps:
• Create a Safe Travels account and complete the mandatory State of Hawaii Travel and Health Form at: https://travel.hawaii.gov/
• Take a pre-travel test from one of the State of Hawaii’s Trusted Testing and Travel Partners after you have been in Hawaii for more than three days, but within 72 hours of arriving on Kauai: https://hawaiicovid19.com/travel-partners/
• Upload negative test results to your Safe Travels account. The Safe Travels program is currently being updated to accommodate Kauai travelers. For now, travelers should plan to present a hard copy of their negative test result for review at Lihue Airport.
• Safe Travels records will be used to verify that you have not traveled out of state in the past three days.
I’m going back to Kauai on January 15th and will be at the Trout Unlimited cabin in Kokee until January 25th. If you want to come over and stay at the cabin let me know so we do not run out of beds. I plan on hiking, fishing, and doing stream restoration on the Kokee or Kauaikenana stream.
