HONOLULU — The Hawaii Department of Health has temporarily elongated the window incoming travelers have to complete a negative coronavirus test.
The state said that travelers can now take their pre-boarding coronavirus test up to 96 hours before their flight instead of 72 hours because of winter storms that have ravaged the continental U.S.
The test will still have to be conducted by a state-approved provider.
The extension will be in effect through Sunday, Hawaii News Now reported.
Travelers must also complete a Hawaii Department of Agriculture form that is distributed on all incoming flights.
Alternatively, visitors can quarantine for 10 days after arriving in Hawaii.
