Hawaii extends mandatory quarantine for out-of-state visitors

|

The mandatory 14-day quarantine for all out-of-state arrivals to Hawaii will continue until July 31 as part of the state's efforts to contain the spread of Covid-19, Hawaii Gov, David Ige announced in a June 10 press conference. 

A similar quarantine for interisland travelers is set to be lifted on June 16, but those flying within the state will have to undergo temperature checks and fill out a health screening form to board their flights. Anyone with a temperature higher than 100.4 degrees will not be allowed to board. 

The state will use the lifting of restrictions on interisland air travel to test Covid-19 monitoring systems prior to opening up to trans-Pacific visitors, Ige said. The state Department of Transportation is considering using thermal temperature screening, facial recognition cameras, and other technology as part of the screening and monitoring process. 

The mandatory 14-day self-quarantine for all out-of-state arrivals began March 26 as part of the state's emergency efforts to contain coronavirus infections. Those subject to the quarantine must remain in their home or accommodations for two weeks, and can only leave for medical purposes. Hotel guests must stay in their rooms, and are not allowed to use any shared facilities such as gyms, pools, or spas while under quarantine.
