Starting Monday, September 13, 2021 the “Safe Access Oahu” program will require customers to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test at restaurants, bars, gyms, movie theaters, museums, arcades and other similar establishments.
Acceptable proof of vaccinations (currently Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson only) are:
- A hard copy of a state-approved vaccination card;
- A photograph/digital copy of a state-approved vaccination card; or
- A Hawaii state-approved digital/smart device app confirming full vaccination status (including the Safe Travels program App or the new SMART Health Card Verifier App); or
- A proof of vaccination administered outside the US, if it can be understood by the establishment.
You must also present proof of identification such as Driver’s license, Non-driver government ID card, passport, school or work ID card.
“Full vaccination” means two weeks have passed after the second dose in a two-dose COVID-19 vaccination series which has been authorized for emergency use or approved by the US FDA.
The Safe Access Oahu program will remain in effect for 60 days, until November 13, 2021. to mitigate the high rate of Delta variant infections on Oahu.
