Welcome to the Modified Quarantine Pilot Program for the Film and Television Industry

On this site you will be able to download and submit the necessary documents to request an exemption to the State of Hawaii 14-day Mandatory Quarantine Order and participate in the Modified Quarantine Pilot Program for the Film and Television Industry.  The documents should be downloaded from the Useful Documents section on the right, and saved to your local drive before filling them out.  The required documents are:

     •  Modified Quarantine Application form, completed and updated by the production company
     •  Modified Quarantine Traveler Attestation form, completed by the traveler
     •  State of Hawaii Save Travels Program:  https://hidot.hawaii.gov/coronavirus/
     *  Exemption notification email, sent to production after confirmation that the traveler has taken a pre-flight
        COVID-19 PCR test, the result of which is negative. 

To participate, incoming cast and crew must be willing to take two COVID-19 PCR tests, one pre-flight test taken two to three days prior to departure and a second test taken seven days after the pre-flight test.  The traveler will also be required to self-isolate between the first test and the second test, except for the travel to Hawaii.

After taking a second test and receiving a negative result, the traveler may enter into Modified Quarantine Status, allowing the crew member to move between their place of residence and the job site (set, production office, etc).  On their 15th day in Hawaii, the crew member exits the Modified Quarantine Pilot Program and should follow the general public guidance.

Crew members are not obligated to participate in the Modified Quarantine Pilot Program to travel to Hawaii.  If a cast or crew member is not able to or does not want to take a COVID-19 test, they would arrive in Honolulu as a normal tourist and follow the standard procedures for all tourists arriving in Hawaii.  Information on the latest requirements for the general public can be found in the hawaiicovid19 link below.
