Maui Mayor Michael Victorino says he is asking the Governor to reinstate the mandatory 14-day quarantine on interisland travel due to the large numbers of COVID-19 cases occurring on the island of Oʻahu.

The request was sent to the Governor this afternoon.

Today marked a second record high single-day increase for new cases, which rose to 60 today alone.  The majority of cases (58) were reported on Oʻahu, with one case on Maui, and the other case is a Hawai‘i resident diagnosed out of state.

Mayor Victorino said the numbers being reported have passed some of the trigger points that had been discussed during earlier meetings.

The mandatory 14-day self-quarantine for interisland travelers was lifted on June 16, 2020.

Meantime, under the governor’s latest emergency supplementary proclamation, the mandatory 14-day quarantine for international and out-of-state arrivals into Hawaiʻi remains in place through at least Aug. 31, 2020.
