There’s no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly spreading around the country. And to help flatten the curve more, Hawaii is implementing an intra-state travel quarantine.
With new quarantine orders in place, a shelter-in-place order on two islands, and vastly reduced service from Hawaiian Airlines, it comes as no surprise that Hawaii hotels are suspending operations.
Following Hawaii Governor Ige’s order mandating a quarantine for any person arriving in the State of Hawaii, the state’s largest carrier announced that Hawaiian Airlines is to cease most flights this week.
For whatever reason, people are still arriving in Hawaii en mass for spring break. So, let’s talk about more reasons to not come to Hawaii right now. You know, besides the obvious, pandemic-related reasons.
Yup, COVID-19 is still continuing to spread across the US and most of the rest of the world. As a result, Hawaii says stay away to all visitors, while Vegas is officially closed for business.
At the moment, Hawaii has only two confirmed cases of COVID-19. Are there more here? Probably. But, for now, we seem low-risk. Yet, COVID-19 impacts in Hawaii are growing by the day.
