COVID-19: Mandatory 14-Day Quarantine for all Arriving Passengers
STATEWIDE ORDER BY GOVERNOR DAVID IGE:
YOU MUST SELF-QUARANTINE FOR 14 DAYS IF YOU ARRIVED IN HAWAII AFTER MARCH 26, 2020
Mandatory 14-Day Quarantine For All Passengers Arriving From
Out-of-State Through July 31
All individuals, both residents and visitors, arriving from out-of-state to Hawaii through July 31, 2020 are still subject to a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine. The mandate applies to all arrivals at state airports, including private and commercial aircrafts.
All arriving passengers are required to initial and sign this order confirming they are aware of the 14-day quarantine and acknowledging they understand violating the order is a criminal offense, and subject to up to a $5,000 fine and/or a year imprisonment.
The period of self-quarantine begins from the time of entry into the State and lasts 14 days or the duration of the person’s time in Hawaii, whichever is shorter. Click here for the order and here for the ninth supplementary proclamation.
The 14-day mandatory self-quarantine for interisland travel was lifted on June 16. This does not apply to individuals arriving from out-of-state. All passengers should arrive to the airport early to allow extra time for the new procedures in place.
The state Department of Transportation (HDOT) requires thermal screening at the airport for everyone traveling interisland.
Travelers are also be required fill out a new interisland travel and health form prior to boarding an interisland flight. The Department of Health (DOH) is directing travelers to a new website, where you can download the form and fill it out no more than 24 hours in advance.
All of the details about new procedures related to interisland travel can be found at: https://health.hawaii.gov/travel/. Frequently asked questions are available here. Travelers may be prohibited from boarding a flight if they have an elevated temperature above 100.4 degrees, they refuse to complete the mandatory form, or they are on the 14-day quarantine list prohibiting them from flying.
According to the ninth supplemental proclamation, all hosts of any guest(s) subject to the mandatary 14-day self-quarantine are responsible for ensuring that their guest(s) abides by the self-quarantine rules. Any host violates this rule if the host intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly fails to notify law enforcement immediately when a guest or guests subject to the self-quarantine fails to enter or remain within the confines of their designated quarantine location.
Please be sure to check the latest guidelines for short term rentals, transient vacation rentals and homestay operations in place, by county (City and County of Honolulu, Maui County, Kauai County, Hawaii County).
Operations that provide vehicles may not rent or provide car sharing services to any person who is subject to a 14-day self-quarantine order unless an exemption is granted.
There are four exceptions to the general rule that all travelers must self-quarantine:
Individuals arriving in the State on recreational boats that have been at sea for at least 14 days do not have to self-quarantine if no one on the boat is ill or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms;
Individuals traveling to the State to perform critical infrastructure functions as described in the proclamation will be subject to self-quarantine but may break quarantine to perform their critical functions;
Individuals traveling interisland for medical care do not have to self-quarantine as long as they wear appropriate protective gear and practice social distancing; and
Hawaii residents who have left the State to perform critical infrastructure work do not need to self-quarantine upon returning but must wear appropriate protective gear and practice social distancing.

Ask someone to drop off food and other necessities at your front door or order room service
