Hawaii - MANDATORY 14-DAY QUARANTINE FOR TOURISTS!

Starting next week, all tourists arriving in Hawaii will be under mandatory quarantine for 14 days by Order of the Governor. You may not leave your hotel room. Penalty for violating this Order is $5,000 fine and/or one year in jail.

Really feel for employees of the travel industry and small businesses here. Friends with 25-30+ years with their companies are being laid off or fearing it’s coming. The online system for filing State unemployment benefits crashed the other day.

It does not only apply to tourists. Residents who return to the islands are subject to 14-day home quarantine.
I live on Kauai and there are only (9) ICU beds and 77 hospital beds on the entire island. So this is being taken very seriously.

I just read that during the quarantine period you are permitted to leave your place of quarantine ONLY for medical reasons. That means having food delivered. Good luck with that in many areas!

Now that the quarantine is in place, yesterday planes arrived that had NO passengers -- or one passenger.
Here on Kauai, there are police checkpoints to enforce the stay-at-home mandate. But thankfully, travel to exercise (including swimming, walking, and surfing at the beach) is permitted.
