Hawaii might be reconsidering its re-opening date of August 1st. Currently, the state requires anyone coming into the Islands, resident or visitor, to quarantine for 14 days because of coronavirus concerns. August 1st was supposed to be when the restriction was lifted and travelers would only need a recent negative COVID-19 test to enter Hawaii.
