A reminder about the 14 Day Traveler’s Quarantine:

SPONSORED VIDEO

You must self-quarantine for 14 days if you arrived in the state of Hawaiʻi after March 26, 2020 – the mandatory quarantine has been extended to Sept. 1, 2020 for all travelers entering Hawaiʻi.

Travelers are instructed to proceed directly from the airport to their designated quarantine location, which is the location identified and affirmed by travelers on their mandatory State of Hawaiʻi Department of Agriculture Plants and Animals Declaration Form.

Travelers under quarantine should remain in their designated quarantine location for a period of 14 days or the duration of their stay in the State of Hawaiʻi, whichever is shorter.

  • If you are a resident, your designated quarantine location is your place of residence.
  • If you are a visitor, your designated quarantine location is your hotel room or rented lodging.
  • You can only leave your designated quarantine location for medical emergencies or to seek medical care.
  • Do not visit any public spaces, including but not limited to pools, meeting rooms, fitness centers, or restaurants.
  • Do not allow visitors in or out of your designated quarantine location other than a physician, healthcare provider, or individual authorized to enter the designated quarantine location by the Director of HIEMA.
  • Comply with any and all rules or protocols related to your quarantine as set forth by your hotel or rented lodging.

Also, if a traveler under quarantine becomes ill with a fever or cough they should:

  • Continue to stay in designated quarantine location, avoid contact with others, and contact a healthcare provider for further instructions on treatment or testing.
  • If you are older or have any medical conditions (e.g., immune compromise, diabetes, asthma), consult your regular healthcare provider.
  • If you feel you need medical care, contact a healthcare provider, and inform them of your travel history.
  • If you need urgent medical care (e.g., have difficulty breathing), call 9-1-1 and let the dispatcher know your travel history).

Travelers will be responsible to get to their place of quarantine. Violation of this order is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to a $5,000 fine or one year in prison.

Travelers seeking an exemption should visit Hawaii.gov or email [email protected]
