Over 800 Hawaii Tourists Arrived Yesterday
Yesterday, 3,462 people arrived in Hawaii. From that total, 828 were Hawaii tourists – visitors to the islands. The unanswered question arises: Is the state prepared to track over 800 people as they quarantine for 14 days? And what about tomorrow’s arrivals? And the next day’s?
During this same time last year approximately 38,000 passengers arrived in Hawaii daily, including residents and visitors. The state’s mandatory 14-day self-quarantine started on March 26 for all passengers arriving in Hawaii from out of state. This table shows the number of people who arrived by air from out of state yesterday and does not include interisland travel. This data was collected from the Hawaii Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Mandatory Travel Declaration Form.
Crew = flight crew members
Transit = people who are in transit to another location through Hawaii and aren’t leaving the airport
Military = military exempt personnel
Exempt = people who are exempt from the 14-day quarantine after receiving prior approval from the state
Relocate to Hawaii = people who are moving to Hawaii
Returning Resident = people who indicate on the DOT’s form that they’re returning residents
Visitor = people who are not in the above categories
The following table shows what the Oahu visitors indicated as the purpose of their trip, and they can choose more than one.
