US States Issue Mandatory Quarantine for Incoming Travelers
Monday, March 30, 2020
Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 and the high incidence of travel-related infection, several US States have issued mandatory 14-day quarantine for incoming passengers.
Most mandates make some exceptions for those entering for essential or critical purposes, such as airline employees, military, health and emergency personnel.
In most states, anyone requiring self-quarantine is responsible for the costs of isolation. It is important to note that some hotels have communicated that their properties are unable to operate as quarantine locations and are unable to house guests coming from outside the state during their quarantine period. Please confirm accommodations prior to travel.
A summary of current state incoming quarantine mandates is below:
Hawaii Effective at 12:01 a.m. on March 26, 2020, all individuals, both residents and visitors, arriving or returning to the State of Hawaii to a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine.
