Governor Ige approved Kauai’s request to temporarily opt out of the state’s Safe Travel’s pre-travel testing program, which allowed travelers to be exempt from quarantine with proof of a negative pre-travel test from an approved testing partner. Travelers must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. This change will be effective 12:01am on December 2, 2020.
A limited number of travel bubble resorts will be open for travelers who must quarantine. Travel bubble resorts will offer some enhanced movement to use resort facilities, however guests will not be allowed to leave the resort to explore the island. The resort bubbles that were announced are:
- Cliffs at Princeville
- Hilton Garden Inn
- Koa Kea
The mayor indicated that other hotels may be added to the list of resort bubbles. Travelers who stay at a resort not approved as a bubble resort must stay confined to their hotel room or designated quarantine place.
