Mayor Michael Victorino provided guidance to Maui County residents on the inter-island travel quarantine policy issued by Gov. David Ige.
The policy will go into effect statewide beginning April 1, according to the Governor’s supplemental emergency proclamation issued today.
“Essential work and health related travel is especially critical in our County, as our unique community spans three islands,” Mayor Victorino said. “Due to reductions in flights, I spoke with Hawaiian Airlines today about transportation for our residents who may need medical treatment on Oahu or have to respond to emergencies. I am committed to working with the State and airlines to balance necessary travel for essential personnel and the protection of our people, especially on Molokai and Lanai.”
Starting April 1, inter-island travelers will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival on any island. This includes travel to and from Lanai and Molokai.
Travelers arriving by airline will be required to complete an inter-island declaration form provided by the State. In addition, all travelers will receive an order from the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency related to their status.
