Kauai Will Soon Require 14-Day Quarantine For Travelers

Hawaii Gov. David Ige has approved a request by the mayor of Kauai to temporarily opt out of the state’s pre-travel testing program. Effective Dec. 2 at 12:01 a.m., all transpacific and intercounty travelers arriving in Kauai will be subject to the 14-day quarantine regardless of testing.

“The unprecedented surge of COVID-19 cases on the mainland and the rise in community spread on Kauai are of significant concern for the Garden Isle. We must protect Kaua‘i residents and visitors and ensure that Kauai’s hospitals do not become overwhelmed,” said Gov. Ige in the press release. “Kauai county currently has the fewest number of ICU beds in the state, and private providers are seeking ways to increase capacity. This moratorium aims to stabilize the situation on Kauai.”

“I’d like to thank Gov. Ige for approving Emergency Rule 23, temporarily pausing Kaua‘i’s participation in the state’s pre-travel testing program. Given the national surge of COVID cases on the mainland, Kaua‘i is unable to adequately protect itself by utilizing the Safe Travels program at this time,” said Mayor Kawakami.

COVID-19 cases remain low in Kauai, with just five new cases reported on Friday and 111 cases total, but 45 of those have been in November. The island has the fewest ICU beds, just nine total. So a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases could cause serious problems at local hospitals.
