Doctors On Call Expands to Include International Travel Testing
With the return of international travel to Hawaiʻi, Doctors On Call has expanded to include International Travel Testing at all their Urgent Care locations.
The State of Hawaiʻi announced will welcome international travelers under the new federal requirements starting Monday, Nov. 8, 2021. Governor David Ige said that as a result, the state of Hawaiʻi will align with federal requirements for entry into the US for international passengers traveling directly to Hawaiʻi as of Nov. 8. The Hawaiʻi Safe Travels program will remain in place for domestic travel.
International travelers who enter the country elsewhere and will be transiting to Hawaiʻi, will be treated as domestic passengers for the purposes of the Safe Travels Hawaiʻi program, “which means that they must comply with our program’s requirements–either be vaccinated, or have a negative NAAT PCR test,” said Gov. Ige.
“We want to make it rapid, easy, and convenient for our visitors… at the same time that we work to return the Maui economy back to normal,” said Dr. Norman Estin, Medical Director of Doctors On Call.
Regional local testing locations are also being set up at many resorts to make it more convenient for the visitor industry and their guests. In addition, Doctors on Call has Mobile Testing Teams that can go out to specific locations to provide on-site testing as needed.
