August howz.IT: NEARLY 7 MILLION USERS ON SAFE TRAVELS, PLUS MORE ETS UPDATESPosted on Sep 8, 2021 in Featured, News, Press Release
HONOLULU – Since the Safe Travels digital platform launched on Sept. 1, 2020, nearly 7 million travelers to Hawaii – both residents and visitors — have used the application. Since the Vaccine Exemption Program was implemented (June 15 for travelers vaccinated in Hawaii and July 8 for domestic travelers vaccinated in the U.S. or U.S. Territories), more than 1.2 million travelers have been able to use their vaccine document to bypass quarantine. More than 4.4 million travelers have used the pre-travel testing program so they would not have to quarantine while in Hawaii.
Most recently, Safe Travels implemented the Health Pass Program with partners CLEAR, Commonpass and AZOVA. These partners help Hawaii enhance traveler experience by providing them with another avenue to verify their COVID-19 test and vaccine information before arrival.
The Health Pass partners also expands the network of testing partners and validates it before entering it into the Safe Travels system. When it comes to vaccines, the vaccine information is validated with databases available to them from other States.
