Hawai'i Lifts Quarantine Requirement for Ontario Airport Flights

Submitted/Ontario International Airport

Passengers traveling to Hawai’i can now bypass the state’s mandatory quarantine with a negative COVID-19 test when flying through Ontario International Airport. KVCR’s Megan Jamerson reports the airport is the first in Southern California to receive this exception.

Instead of a 10-day quarantine, travelers must show proof of a negative COVID test taken by a trusted partner within 72 hours of departure, according to the announcement from the governor of Hawai’i.

Passengers have two testing options–an expedited PCR test with next day results or a rapid test that provides results within an hour.

The airport offers drive-through testing on site through their partner called Covid Clinic. These tests may or may not be covered by insurance.

The airport recently expanded service to Hawai’i with non-stop flights five times a week.
