Hawaii will fine self-quarantine violators $5,000 or send them to prison

  • Anyone traveling between Hawaii's islands must quarantine themselves for two weeks.
  • Hawaii Gov.David Ige signed a proclamation that requires residents and visitors who travel between islands to quarantine themselves for 14 days.
  • Quarantined people will not be allowed to leave their hotel rooms or receive visitors.
  • Anyone who violates the mandatory quarantine could face up to $5,000 in fines or a year in prison if convicted.

The only exception is for those who need to travel to get medical care, but they must follow social distancing. Do you think Hawaii is being to strict or do you think that is what is needed?
