Due to the increase in the number of infections in the state as well as in the mainland, Hawaii decided to extend the restriction for out-of-state tourists. As of September 1, all visitors must present a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours before taking the flight. Last Monday, Hawaii reported 23 new cases, including 14 Hawaiian Airlines flight attendants, to reach a total of 1,243. Hawaii is not the only state taking this kind of measures, California closed all indoor dining at restaurants; Las Vegas shut down all bars that don’t serve food five weeks after reopening them; New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Chicago require visitors from COVID-19 hot spots to quarantine for 14 days; And Disneyland delayed its planned July 17 reopening.
