Useful TIP: Vault Health is a good option if you are not located in a major city with easy access to quick testing. We have seen many visitors do this successfully. One really important tip is to do a separate zoom call for each person taking the test in the family. That way each zoom call is recorded separately. We have one family that did everyone over a single Zoom call which led to confusion. Thanks to Chris D. for the tip! Also make sure to mark your package “STAT HAWAII”.
Please note you will need to show the QR code on your phone showing you are not subject to quarantine to the car rental company. After that guests were free to enjoy a wonderful vacation on the Big Island of Hawai’i.
