JUNETEENTH, A NEW FEDERAL HOLIDAY, June 19, is recognized in Hawai'i as a time of remembrance but not a state worker holiday. The national Junteenth holiday commemorates the end of slavery in 1865 , the date in which the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation became known and recognized everywhere in the U.S.
To start this new holiday, most federal workers were given a day off on Friday, June 18. One exception was the U.S. Postal Service, which continued its work on Friday and Saturday.
After lunging at police with the knife, the unidentified man, of no known address, was killed by police. The officer who fired the fatal shot is on administrative leave. The police officer who was stabbed was treated at Hilo Medical Center.
FRENCH POLYNESIANS' TRAVEL TO HAWAIʻI WILL SOON BECOME EASIER, with the Hawaiʻi state government accepting negative COVID tests from trusted partners in Tahiti and sister islands. The
waiving of the ten-day COVID quarantine with negative test results begins tomorrow, June 21.
Gov. David Ige said, "I am very grateful to President Fritch and all those in the French Polynesian government who have worked hard to make our pre-travel testing program available to your residents. Many of Hawaiʻi’s residents have family in Tahiti, and welcoming our guests from French Polynesia to Hawaiʻi is an important step in maintaining the close relationship between our two regions.”
Nicole Bouteau, Minister of Tourism and Labor said, “We are really very happy that your discussions with the Louis Malardé Institute and our Ministry of Tourism are now allowing the resumptions of rotations between Hawaiʻi and French Polynesia.”
Peter Ingram, CEO of Hawaiian Airlines, said, “It’s exciting to see the program that the governments of our two regions have worked closely on over the last several months come together. Hawaiʻi and French Polynesia have been successful in our fight against COVID-19, and today’s announcement is a reflection of our continued progress against the disease. Hawaiian has been flying to Tahiti since 1987 and we are pleased to once again connect our South Pacific guests with aloha.”
ALL AIR PASSENGERS COMING INTO THE U.S., according to a State of Hawaiʻi reminder today, must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19, as mandated by Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.
