Traveling to Hawaii?

Together with Ontario International Airport Authority’s testing partner Covid Clinic, Inc., OIAA offers several COVID-19 testing options, including for those traveling to Hawaii under the Safe Travels Hawaii pre-travel testing program.

A negative COVID-19 test within 72-hours of departure is required to be exempt from a supervised quarantine upon arrival in Hawaii.

All COVID-19 tests and Hawaii pre-travel tests are available to anyone in the community. There are several COVID-19 testing options at ONT, including a “walk-up” basis and by appointment, 6:30am-10:30pm everyday at the airport testing location in Parking Lot 3.

  • To protect yourself and others, travelers, guests and employees are required to wear masks at Ontario International Airport. By the mandates of the State of California and County of San Bernardino masks are required to be worn in our airport. Airlines also require masks to be worn at their gates and on the aircraft. 
  • How to properly wear a mask? Place it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin. For more info from The CDC, click here.
  • Forgot your mask? ONT has Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) vending machines located on both floors of each Terminal where you can purchase masks, gloves, sanitizers, and more to keep you clean & safe during your travels.


  • Restrooms and hand sanitizer stations are located on every floor of all ONT Terminals and buildings.


  • You touch so many surfaces when you travel so it is very important to keep your hands away from your face, especially your eyes, nose, and mouth.


  • Here are 5 steps to follow every time you wash your hands:
    1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
    2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
    3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
    4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
    5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
  • Avoid close contact with other guests or staff at the airport. The CDC recommends maintaining a six (6) foot distance between yourself and others that you are not traveling with.


  • To indicate six feet (2 meters) for social distancing, floor and seat decals have been placed throughout ONT and especially in crowded areas like baggage claim, security checkpoints, and airline gate spaces.


  • Plexiglass partitions have been installed at airline ticket counters, information desks, shops, and restaurants to provide a barrier when proximity may be compromised


  • Seating has been removed from restaurants and allowed capacity has been reduced by as much as 50% in some locations to ensure social distancing can be practiced while you enjoy your meal

As of November 23, 2020, ONT partners with Covid Clinic to provide a testing site that is open daily in Parking Lot 3. Find out more information or book an appointment here: https://flyont.news/covidclinic
