Quarantine Exemption for Medical Travel
County of Maui News Release
Mayor Michael Victorino announced that Maui County residents traveling for medical purposes will be exempt from quarantine and will not need to take a pre-departure test for COVID-19.
“We know many of our residents in Maui County need to travel briefly to Oahu for medical purposes or to undergo medical procedures or treatment that’s not available here at home,” Mayor Victorino said. “This exemption allows for same day or overnight travel for patients get their needed treatment. Hopefully, it will reduce the amount of anxiety they experience in an already stressful situation.”
This exemption is available only to those not subject to any other quarantine.
Updated emergency rules, signed and approved by the governor, now allow Maui County residents traveling for medical purposes an exemption from quarantine and a pre-departure COVID-19 test. The medical exemption is ONLY for same day or overnight travel. Travelers do not need to apply for a quarantine exemption, but they must present their flight itinerary and doctor’s letter with an appointment to airport screeners upon arrival.
If the medical traveler needs a travel companion, this person must be specifically identified in the doctor’s letter. This exemption does not apply to any non-medical-related travel.
