WillHawaiis covid-19 travel restrictions are set to take effect next week, according to Hawaii Gov.
The governor’s office said the restrictions were put in place as part of an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Travelers are encouraged to follow local and state guidelines to avoid the virus and avoid using public transportation or public areas such as shopping centers, airports, and museums.
The state also urged residents to get vaccinated.
It also announced it would offer free vaccinations for anyone 18 and older with a vaccination record.
If you’re in Hawaii, you’re eligible for free vaccines, including hepatitis B and C vaccines, for the first time this year.
For the first 24 hours, anyone who has traveled to a state that has covid immunity will be eligible for one free dose of a hepatitis B vaccine.
Anyone who hasn’t visited Hawaii for at least 24 hours and is still eligible for a free vaccine is eligible for another free dose at the discretion of the governor.
More to come.
