We know you’ve probably had a few questions about COVID-19 regulations during your trip. This blog will help answer those questions and outline exactly what you need to know before you leave.

Should I quarantine before I go?

We strongly suggest that you self-quarantine one week prior to your trip.  If you do test positive, or do not receive a negative test result in time, we will do our best to put you on a later trip, but there is no guarantee this will be possible.

Do I need to get tested before I leave?

No test is required. You will need to bring your physical vaccine card with you on the trip.

If I get a positive test result before my trip, can I get a refund?

As stated when you registered, there will be no refund for your current trip if you test positive (see our COVID Response page for more information).

Will I have to take any more COVID tests once I'm on my trip?

No Covid test is required upon arrival unless a traveler shows extreme symptoms. 

COVID Vaccine Requirements?

The Covid-19 vaccine is required for all 2022 HXP participants. You will need to bring your physical vaccine card with you on your trip. 

If you are not fully vaccinated or bring a counterfeit vaccine card you will not be allowed on your HXP trip. 

Currently, the booster is not required, but they encourage travelers to stay up to date on their vaccines and it is subject to change. We strongly encourage you to stay up to date with the current news within Hawaii. Updated Covid requirements can be found here.

What happens if I test positive while on my trip?

If you test positive for COVID-19 while on your trip, you will be required to quarantine at your own expense . We recommend obtaining health insurance to cover this potential cost, in case you test positive while in-country. 

If you test positive you will need to isolate at least 5 full days after your symptoms started or if you have no symptoms five full days since your test date. If you are fever less for 24 hours without taking fever-reducing medications or your symptoms are improving you can end your isolation. If you still have a fever and your symptoms are not yet improving you must remain in isolation. 

You've got this!

With love,

Your HXP Team
