Next week my wife returns from the mainland and we're working through the Safe Travels website as to when she should get her CoVid test and uploaded. I understood the test needed to be "within 72 hours" of her return flight's departure.

I copied this directly from the Safe Travels website:
Sample collection date. The collection date must be no earlier than 72 hours before departure on the final leg to Hawaii.

English is my first language and I do not speak politicalese. That being said, I think this website sentence is written incorrectly. To me it says it has to be at least 72 hours old, which means even a test two weeks or two months old would work. That makes no sense.

I eventually got through to someone in the government who said it is written correctly, but it actually means "within 72 hours". Am I just reading it wrong?
