Do I have to quarantine in Hawaii?

On October 15th, Hawaii began permitting individuals to bypass their quarantine, in the event that they introduced a latest detrimental take a look at outcome with them. The issue was, they have been solely permitting take a look at outcomes from specific U.S. lab companions, making it troublesome for Canadians.

On November 19th, Westjet introduced that DynaLIFE Medical Labs was permitted by Hawaii as a trusted take a look at accomplice. They’re the primary one in Canada to be permitted.

So how does this work?

Right here is the data from the Westjet web site:

To keep away from quarantine when travelling to Hawaii, company should:

1. Arrange a Protected Travels Hawaii account for every travelling grownup at http://journey.hawaii.gov

2. Take a take a look at at a DynaLIFE taking part pharmacy location inside 72-hours of their flight departing to Hawaii.
The take a look at is $150 CAD.

3. Full the Journey Well being Questionnaire on Protected Travels inside 24 hours of their flight departure to obtain a personalised QR code.

4. Show the Protected Travels QR code and detrimental take a look at outcome from DynaLIFE throughout boarding.

5. Full the ultimate screening course of upon arrival into Hawaii by displaying the customized QR code, detrimental take a look at outcomes, authorities ID, and be ready to reveal their methodology of communication for the every day well being check-in (i.e. cellular phone).

What are the DynaLIFE taking part pharmacy areas, the place I take the take a look at?

At present, the DynaLIFE web site would not make it very straightforward to search out the taking part areas, significantly in Calgary.

What you must do is go to their Journey Covid-19 Testing web page.

I needed to faux to make a reserving, to get to the ultimate step, which lists the areas. Listed below are the Calgary areas, they’re all at Buyers Drug Mart.

Calgary NW
28 Crowfoot Terrace NW
3625 Shaganappi Path NW

Calgary NE
5500 Falsbridge Dr NE

Calgary SW
2412 Four Avenue SW
2067 33 Ave SW

Calgary SE
19489 Seton Cres SE

There are additionally 9 areas in Edmonton, 2 in Lethbridge, and 1 in Fort McMurray, Drugs Hat, and Pink Deer.

And what about after I return, do I nonetheless quarantine in Canada?

The steps above are solely to bypass quarantine on Hawaii’s facet.

The one strategy to bypass the 14-day quarantine on Canada’s facet while you return is to be concerned with the take a look at program happening at Calgary YYC airport, for worldwide arrivals.

It is best to think about them as 2 utterly separate packages, with totally different steps and {qualifications} for every. Simply since you qualify for one, doesn’t imply you qualify for the opposite.

It would be best to be certain that to learn and perceive the total particulars concerning the take a look at program for YYC worldwide arrivals. There are fairly a number of issues to pay attention to.

The brief model is that your flight coming dwelling will need to have Calgary (YYC) because it’s first entry level into Canada, so that you simply arrive at YYC’s worldwide terminal, to ensure that the flight to qualify.

What this implies is that it could have to be both:
– a continuous flight from Honolulu/Maui to Calgary
– a flight from someplace in Hawaii, to the U.S. mainland (often San Francisco, Seattle, or Los Angeles), after which instantly from there to Calgary.

A flight from Hawaii to Vancouver to Calgary wouldn’t qualify, as a result of in that case Vancouver is your first level of entry into Canada.

Talking of continuous flights…

Are there any continuous flights from Canada to Hawaii?

No. Not but, anyhow. Westjet and Air Canada have been attempting to renew their flights from Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto to Honolulu (HNL) and Maui (OGG) since October.

However up till this level, with out the power to bypass quarantine on Hawaii’s facet (to not point out the quarantine on Canada’s facet), the demand has been too low, in order that they preserve getting cancelled.

Air Canada and Westjet each have continuous flights scheduled from Calgary, Vancouver, and Toronto to Honolulu & Maui beginning December 19th.

The query is, will this create sufficient demand for these flights to renew on December 19th? Or will they get pushed again one other month?

In the event you have been inserting bets on the flights that may really fly, it could be Westjet’s continuous flights from Calgary to Honolulu (HNL) and Maui (OGG). In second place could be Air Canada’s continuous flights from Calgary to Maui (OGG). These are the one flights that qualify to bypass quarantine on Canada’s facet while you return, as a result of they fly proper into YYC’s worldwide terminal. And Alberta is the one province with permitted testing to bypass quarantine on Hawaii’s facet.

Flights from Vancouver/Toronto to Hawaii should not more likely to resume till B.C. or Ontario are in an analogous state of affairs.

So, can I get the take a look at by way of DynaLIFE, and fly with another person apart from Westjet?

The Westjet web site actually makes it *sound* like you must fly with them (‘WestJet has partnered with the Authorities of Hawaii…’). However after all they will make it sound that manner.

My hunch is that DynaLIFE would gladly take your $150 for the take a look at, and Hawaii would settle for the outcome from DynaLIFE, even in the event you fly there on Air Canada, United, and so forth.

However I’ve no official affirmation of this. I’ve seen that Air Canada put out a press launch ‘welcoming the announcement that Canadians at the moment are eligible to be exempt from Hawaii’s quarantine’. And that Air Canada is ‘happy to be a most popular airline in Hawaii’s Protected Travels Program’.

The Air Canada press launch makes no point out of DynaLIFE, or another testing location, and says that ‘extra particulars about Hawaii’s pre-travel testing necessities for purchasers will likely be out there shortly on aircanada.com’.

Replace: I’ve heard from travellers who contacted airways aside from Westjet and Air Canada, and so they confirmed that they have been nonetheless eligible for the Dynalife take a look at and that Hawaii would settle for it.

Are there any nice offers to Hawaii proper now?

There are some fairly nice costs from Calgary to Maui on Air Canada proper now. $445 CAD roundtrip, for continuous flights, even over Christmas…

Google Flights: Calgary to Kahului, Maui (OGG)

And Westjet has continuous flights from Calgary to Honolulu or Maui for $517 CAD roundtrip over Christmas ($575 in January, February, March)…

Google Flights: Calgary to Honolulu (HNL)

Google Flights: Calgary to Honolulu (HNL)

However as I discussed above, zero flights have but to really fly from anyplace in Canada to Hawaii.

Is there anything I ought to learn about flying to Hawaii?

You might have considered trying to pay attention to the particular necessities that every of the Four main islands has for incoming vacationers.

Kauai and Maui are asking individuals to volunteer to take a second take a look at 72 hours after arrival. Oahu / Honolulu has no extra necessities.

The Massive Island (Kona) is requiring that guests take one other necessary speedy antigen take a look at once they land.
