Also, during quarantine, it seems that you are obliged to report online that you are doing quarantine every day called Daily check-in.
If you go out even though you are in quarantine, you will be fined.
In some cases, staff hired in Hawaii have made several phone calls to confirm that they are properly quarantined.
For my friend, the police seem to have visited the quarantine.

The situation changes every day, so we recommend that you check the latest information at any time. Mahalo!
