Anyone traveling to the Hawaiian Islands will be facing a required 14 day quarantine once they arrive because of COVID-19. That means visitors can’t leave their hotel room for two weeks.
How will that be enforced?
When guests check in at their hotel or condo, they’ll be issued a plastic key card as usual, but the key will only be able to be used once. If a visitor leaves their hotel room, they would have to go back to the front desk to get another key. That’s when the hotel staff can call the police to report the quarantine violation.
