The Hawaiian State Agency has allocated $ 25,000 for the deportation of tourists who do not wish to comply with 14-day quarantine.
The state said that the deportation will be carried out by the non-profit organization Aloha, which in the usual epidemiological situation solves the problems of tourists arriving on the islands.
"We are confident that the rapid deportation of all tourists who do not wish to be quarantined on arrival on 14 days will help us significantly reduce the spread of coronavirus and not create a burden on healthcare," said Claire Connors, Attorney General of Hawaii.
Compulsory quarantine was introduced in the state on April 1, but not everyone agrees to abide by it. Currently, 19 people have been deported from the islands. Many leave for their money, in rare cases, a return ticket is bought at the expense of the state.
The Governor of Hawaii, David Age, admits that their health care system is already loaded to the maximum, and does not want arriving tourists to cause even greater problems.
The main problem for the islands is that in the United States, many citizens can still safely travel around the country. Most Americans rarely go on vacation to other states, preferring domestic tourism. The beaches in California and Florida are now mostly closed, on some of them you can only move or swim, but you can not sit on the sand or sunbathe. Hawaii has remained more liberal in this matter.
