Hawaii’s newly created Special Senate Committee on COVID-19 held its first meeting Thursday, as the state Department of Health confirmed six new cases of COVID-19.

Airport Division of the Department of Transportation agreed with the committee’s recommendation to include a new 14-day quarantine of any airline passengers and urged Governor David Ige to put the plan into action immediately.

Is this official. Just wondering because I know someone who works for Redweek that has been swamped with cancellations.

According to the article, it's awaiting a decision by the governor to implement it.

This is just a strategy to keep people from coming to the islands. If you are going to be here less than 14 days why come? Why would you come here if your first two weeks was spent in quarantine? What cases there are on the islands are all directly traceable to travel off the islands. There are so many cancellations over here that the odds of bringing in the virus shrink, but it only takes one! There are still only the two cases on Kaua’i and I am sure they would like to keep it that way.

And where would they quarantine people?

I thought it was stated in the article posted, but I didn't see it. I do remember reading somewhere that people would be quarantined in their homes or hotels. So I assume it would be a self-quarantine and probably impossible to enforce. I'll see if I can find the reference I read.

That’s rather what I thought. More style than substance, as it were.

What did she do for groceries/necessities while self-quarantined?
She lives with us. So she is being taken care of. If she lived alone, and in the same town as we do we would have brought them to her. There are ways. There is also grocery delivery, neighbors willing to help out.

Thanks Luanne, we have book two weeks for Hawaii this summer.
A fourteen (14) days quarantine on incoming air passengers before you can visit Hawaii. Is not a good thing for my family.

I know they are still working out the details, but from the initial article it sounded like you'd be allowed in, but then need to self-quarantine at your hotel. So that would take up your entire trip. I'd also be worried about how much would be back to being open. Some Canadian friends just cancelled (well actually postponed) their dream trip to Maui in April. She said they were refunded everything so they plan to go later on.

Last I heard they were saying 30 days but I haven’t heard of it was an official ban yet.

Typo on the through date?

It appears they are closing from March 24 to March 31.

I hope Hawaii can open up for business soon. This is going to hurt the entire state. Tourism is a huge industry for them. I am also worried about the Disney parks and all of the people who work there.

Not to mention all of the restaurants, small businesses, etc., etc., etc. throughout the country.

As bad as the economy will get, Hawaii does not have the medical resources to treat an epidemic - most of us who live here would rather close the state to visitors and help each other locally to get through this.

I agree. And I believe it will hurt every other state in the USA as well as many foreign countries.
