Hawaii governer David Ige has announced on Twitter that starting on Nov. 1, Hawaii will welcome back both essential and non-essential tourists. Due to the state’s uptick in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in late August, Ige made the request for non-essential travelers to stay away. That severely hurt Hawaii’s tourism industry, as it saw millions lost in revenue. Meanwhile, Hawaii’s “Safe Travel” plans will continue to remain in place.
