COVID 14-day quarantine for Hawaii travel

Explorer C

I just noticed that the Governor of Hawaii is lifting the 14-day quarantine for travel from the mainland to Hawaii, starting on Aug. 1.  However, passengers need to take a valid COVID test with a negative result within 72 hours of their reservation.  My question is this: does the actual test need to be taken within 72 hours of travel OR can a passenger take the test at any time and provide the negative test results within 72 hours?  I realize the details are still being worked out and maybe it will be more clear in the near future.  It is critical for us to know since we have a reservation on Aug. 1st!  Anyone  who can clarify this for me?
