Statewide Order by Governor David Ige
Governor Ige issued the seventeeth supplemental proclamation, which reduces the state's mandatory self-quarantine period for travelers entering the state and traveling between counties from 14 to 10 days.
All transpacific travelers are required to have a negative test result from a trusted travel partner before their departure for Hawaii, in order to bypass the mandatory 10-day quarantine. Test results will not be accepted once a traveler arrives in Hawaii. Travelers who do not have a negative test result prior to departing for Hawaii must self-quarantine for 10 days. As of December 2, Kauai is no longer participating in the state’s pre-travel testing program, so all transpacific travelers arriving on Kauai are subject to the 10-day quarantine regardless of testing, unless they are participating in the Enhanced Movement Quarantine (EMQ) or "resort bubble" program.

County of Kauai
Emergency Rule 24 implements a pre- and post-travel testing program for visitors who stay in “resort bubble” hotels, effective January 5. The new rule allows travelers to Kauai, who receive a negative pre-travel test and stay in an approved Enhanced Movement Quarantine (EMQ) “resort bubble” property, to take a post-travel test three days after arrival and be released from quarantine with a negative post-travel test result.
Emergency Rule 23 places a temporary moratorium on Kauai’s participation in the state’s pre-travel testing program. All transpacific travelers arriving on Kauai are subject to the 10-day quarantine regardless of testing. Critical infrastructure workers, essential medical travel, or travelers in other special circumstances can apply for a modified quarantine -- visit www.kauai.gov/COVID-19 and click on the “modified quarantine request” button at the top of the page.
Emergency Rule 23 Amendment 1, which took effect on January 5, allows intercounty travelers five and older to be exempt from the mandatory quarantine if the travelers receive a negative test result from a test taken after they have been physically present in the State of Hawaii for at least 72 hours.
Under Emergency Rule 14, no transient vacation rental or homestay, as defined by the Kauai County Code, may be designated as a quarantine location for a new resident more than once in any six month period. The property owner, property manager, landlord, tenant, and guest shall each be responsible for ensuring compliance with this rule.

County of Hawaii
Under Emergency Rule Thirteen, all trans-Pacific travelers who participate in the state's pre-travel test program are required to take a second test upon arrival to Hawaii Island at a County-designated facility near the airport. The County will bear the cost of the testing under federal CARES Act funds.
Short-term vacation rentals (STVR), bed and breakfast (B&B) establishments, or other paid or commercial lodging defined by the Hawaii Revised Statutes as “transient accommodations” cannot be designated as a quarantine location except for visiting essential and critical infrastructure workers, provided quarantine restrictions are followed; and individuals meeting the negative pre-travel test exception under Section 1V.B and Exhibit B Section 4(a)(2) of the Governor's fourteenth proclamation. They also cannot be designated as a quarantine place for new or "intended" residents.
Persons who have pre-arranged for long-term residential housing of 180 days or longer may utilize such housing as their designated quarantine location, provided that the full 10-day quarantine is served and not stopped early.
