Hawaii lifts more travel curbs

Hawaii has started taking its first meaningful steps back to normality.

It has begun easing restrictions with inter-island travel now no longer requiring a pre-travel Covid test.

Rules have also changed for trans-Pacific travel with those vaccinated in Hawaii no longer needing proof of a negative Covid test or quarantining.

It will be extended to all vaccinated travelers when the state's vaccination rate meets 60%.

Vaccination status must be uploaded to Hawaii's Safe Travels website.

"The easing of travel restrictions is a direct result of our robust vaccination rate. We need to push hard now so we can get to the point where Safe Travels is no longer needed to keep the people of Hawaii safe,"Gov. David Ige said.

The eased rules kicked in as the state reached a 55% fully vaccinated rate.

When it reached 70%, all travel restrictions will be lifted.
