Maui County residents are reminded that the Governor has reinstituted the mandatory 14-day quarantine for any travel other than arrival on Oahu.
The quarantine includes travel from Maui to Hawaii Island or Kauai, as well as travel to and from Molokai and Lanai.
If you are traveling to Honolulu, then you would not have to quarantine for 14 days while on Oahu. However, you would have to quarantine when you return home to Maui County.
“With Oahu’s 200 new cases reported today and 1,618 active cases statewide, reinstituting the interisland quarantine was necessary to protect our community and healthcare system,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “I also want to let our residents know that we are discouraging any non-essential travel, but we understand if you need to travel for work or medical care.”
All interisland travelers seeking a modified travel quarantine due to essential work or medical reasons must complete the Request for Limited Quarantine Form.
If you live in Maui County and need to travel to another Neighbor Island, please visit its County’s website for exemption information.
Maui Police Department will be enforcing the mandatory 14-day quarantine order for transpacific and interisland travelers.
To report a suspected violation of the 14-day quarantine, email MPDquarantine@mpd.net. You may also call MPD’s non-emergency phone number as a backup at 244-6400.
