Mayor Victorino releases statement on Pre-, Post-travel testing for COVID-19

The County of Maui’s plan for a pre-travel testing program and other requests to protect the public’s health and safety remain pending Gov. David Ige’s approval.

“Our plans are aimed at protecting the health and safety of our residents and limiting the spread of COVID-19,” Mayor Victorino said. “We want our visitors to: come in healthy; stay healthy; and go home healthy, and that keeps Maui County healthy.”

Maui County’s three primary requests to the Governor are:

* Maui County residents who travel solely between Maui, Molokai and Lanai would not be subject to quarantine or the pre-travel testing program.

* Interisland (or intercounty) travelers be allowed to participate in the pre-travel testing program. (i.e. Travel between Maui County and Kauai County)

* Support from the state to urge transpacific travelers to voluntarily take a second test after they arrive in Maui County.

“We are also pushing the state to roll out its contact tracing app and surveillance testing program before visitors arrive on Oct. 15,” Mayor Victorino said. “This is vital in ensuring we can limit any potential spread in the future.”
