Hawai‘i “Safe Travels” App Launches to Monitor Individuals Under Quarantine
The state launched a new web-based app called “Safe Travels.” It is being rolled out as a way to monitor travelers who are subject to the 14-day quarantine in the State of Hawaiʻi.
Under the app, travelers arriving in the state are asked to fill out an electronic form, that includes information on where they’re staying during their quarantine.
The Department of Taxation worked with the Department of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism to roll out the system on Apr. 10.
Once travellers get to a Hawaiʻi airport, they’ll have to show proof they completed their registration and provide some form of identification.
After that, they’ll be expected to check-in daily during their mandatory 14-day quarantine. https://safetravels.hawaii.
State officials say those who are not connected will be asked to fill out a paper document and will have staff follow up.
The arriving will be asked to sign an order to attest that they understand the conditions of entering the airport and the state.
Those who register via the app will be asked to check in daily and will be sent an email reminder. They will be asked three questions about their health condition. After 14 days, they will be released from monitoring.
State officials say they believe the process will expedite and improve the ability of counties to conduct enforcement related to quarantine violations.
