While more states continue to add shelter-in-place and stay home rules, Hawaii will become the first US state with a mandatory 2 week quarantine for all incoming travelers.
The new rule goes into effect on Thursday at 12:01am. It applies to both Hawaii residents and visitors flying in from any other state or country. It doesn’t apply to intra-Hawaii flights and it also won’t apply to flight crew.
If you don’t have a home you can quarantine in your hotel room. You won’t be allowed to leave your home or hotel room, except for medical care or to take a flight out of Hawaii.
Violators will face a year in prison and/or a $5,000 fine.
Do you think other states will copy Hawaii’s incoming traveler quarantine rules?
