Hawaii has seen a 98% decrease in travelers arriving at airports since the state’s 14-day quarantine rule was put in place, Gov. David Ige said during a press conference Saturday.
About 100 travelers are still arriving every day which is why the extension of the quarantine order for visitors to the state was necessary, Ige said.
The screening process for visitors includes a temperature check and verification of hotel accommodations while at the airport. Each visitor must provide a phone number for their hotel accommodations and they will not be allowed to leave the airport if their accommodation isn’t confirmed by an employee at the hotel, Ige said.
