QUARANTINE AND SAFER-AT-HOME ORDER EXTENDED THROUGH JUNE 30
The governor is expected to extend the 14-day quarantine for travelers through June 30. This comes as the governor announced that he intends to continue Hawaii’s safer-at-home order through June 30.
The Hawaii Tourism Authority, Department of Transportation, and other state agencies are working with the airlines to toughen the entry restrictions, to include revising the visitor arrival form, requiring the flight crew to complete the form, seeking to confirm return flights, increasing the screening staff at airports, stiffening hotel quarantines, enforcing rules on car rentals, and confirming hotel or home stays, among others.
The COVID-19 committee met with the Police Chief, representatives from the Courts, and the Prosecutor's Office to coordinate enforcement of the 14-day quarantine. There were general agreements for a maximum bail of $2,000 for quarantine violators. Arraignment would be done virtually within 48-72 hours.
Police statistics for Emergency Proclamation violations from March 20 to May 14 included 9,313 warnings, 5,244 citations, and 292 arrests.
To report a possible self-quarantine violation, contact your county police department at 911. The police have access to all data pertaining to airport arrivals.
