Hawaii Governor David Ige announced on Wednesday that a pre-travel testing program will be implemented throughout the state starting October 15. It will allow out-of-state travelers to bypass the 14-day quarantine period if they show a negative COVID-19 test result upon arrival.

The test will need to be taken 72 hours before travelers arrive in the island. They will be required to have their temperatures checked and complete a travel questionnaire once their flight touch down on Hawaii.

As part of an agreement with the state, the approved testing partners for this program are CVS and Kaiser Permanente, according to a press release by the governor’s office.
