Maui Hotel Closures 03-2020 – Maui Forum


Just received this email from Aston…I don’t have any reservations but have in past years. It pretty much spells out what people who travel to Hawaii[1] will be responsible to pay. Might be of interest to those still contemplating travel..whom by now I would hope have changed their minds

Dear Valued Guest,

As you know, we have never experienced anything like what we are now facing with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its global impact, as well as the uncertainty around what will evolve in the coming weeks and months. The rapidly evolving nature of this situation has resulted in new directives and legislation on almost a daily basis, so please know that we will continue to get you the most recent information as quickly as possible.

In an effort to protect visitors and the people of Hawaii, Hawaii Governor David Ige has made the unprecedented request that visitors delay their visit and not travel to Hawaii at this time. It was announced that effective March 26 at 12:01 a.m. Hawaii is mandating a self-quarantine for ALL visitors and returning residents for 14 days or for the duration of their stay in Hawaii, whichever is shorter. This quarantine mandate will be in effect for an indefinite period of time.

Read the Press Release from the Governor of the State of Hawaii.

Here’s what you need to know:

The 14-day quarantine mandate applies to all arrivals to the state of Hawaii.

The mandate begins on Thursday, March 26 at 12:01 a.m. and will continue indefinitely.

Visitors are responsible for quarantine costs.

Visitors are to quarantine at their rented lodging.

Data such as name, phone number and address of the hotel will be collected from the state’s agriculture form that travelers fill out prior to arrival.

Violation of the quarantine is a misdemeanor and subject to a $5,000 fine and/or jail time.

While we understand this may be disappointing news, the Governor has said this mandate is being implemented to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in Hawaii and to safeguard the health and safety of all.
