Safe Travels Testing Evaluation Program Update 

Known as a strategic surveillance study, the Safe Travels Testing Evaluation Program, collects and evaluates data from COVID-19 testing of travelers after they’ve arrived in Hawai‘i. Lt. Gov. Josh Green said, “We are at a critical point in the pandemic, where we need to balance public health and safety with the economic well-being of our islands. We anticipate this study will serve as a guide for state leadership and policy makers on how to move forward.” 


This surveillance study is an added layer of safety to compliment the overall Safe Travels pre-travel testing program. People participating must have also participated in a pre-travel test and are selected randomly to take a free, voluntary second test one to four days after their arrival. 


Dr. DeWolfe Miller, an epidemiologist with the John A. Burns School of Medicine is leading the study in coordination with HI-EMA, Governor’s Office, the LG and trusted testing partners. Dr. Miller commented, “The results of this study will demonstrate if screening for symptoms and a negative NAAT test prior to travel will be sufficient to prevent additional introduction of infection.” CARES Act funding provided $1.5 million for surveillance testing.
