Mandatory 14-Day Quarantine for all Individuals Arriving or Returning to the State of Hawaii
While Hawaii is not currently under a travel notice, on March 21, 2020, Governor Ige announced a mandatory 14-day quarantine for all incoming travelers, to take effect on Thursday, March 26. This was an additional step, following his March 17, 2020 comments urging visitors to postpone their vacations to Hawaii for at least 30 days.
“With the majority of Hawaii’s COVID-19 cases linked to travel, it is critical that we further mitigate the spread of the virus by both residents and visitors who are coming from out-of-state,” said Gov. Ige. “This plan was developed in collaboration with our county mayors and Hawaii’s business, community and visitor industry leaders.”
All visitors and residents arriving through Hawaii’s airports will be required to complete a Hawaii Department of Agriculture form that will be distributed onboard their flight. They will retain the form when disembarking the aircraft. Upon arrival, they will go through a checkpoint and present the completed form with a valid identification. Checkpoint staff will validate the form and issue documentation that certifies they cleared the checkpoint. The form also includes information on the mandatory requirements for the 14-day quarantine along with penalties.
Failure to follow this order is a misdemeanor and punishable by a maximum fine of $5,000, or imprisonment of not more than one year, or both. Enforcement will be handled by each of Hawaii’s four counties. The mandate will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, March 26, 2020.
Public Health Emergency Rules amended for residents to stay at home during COVID-19 crisis Mayor Michael Victorino announced a “stay at home and work from home” amendment to the Public Health Emergency Rules in an effort to fight the spread of COVID-19.
The amendment is effective at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, March 25, 2020. The new order will be in effect until April 30.
“The health and safety of our community has always been my top priority and I believe we need to take bold actions if we are to stop the spread of this virus,” Mayor Victorino said. “I am ordering all our residents to stay at home and our visitors to stay in their rooms as much as possible. Critical services and operations will continue, and everyone will still be able to get groceries and essential supplies. However, we need to work together and continue to take care of each other with compassion and care.”
