As Lāna‘i continues to see a spike in COVID-19 cases, the island is being put under a stay-at-home order starting tomorrow to mitigate the spread of the virus. The order was signed by Gov. David Ige this morning. It goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. Maui Mayor Michael Victorino said, “With the rapidly rising positive COVID-19 case count, this is an important step to limit the spread of the virus and protect the health and safety of this vulnerable community on Lāna‘i … For now, we recommend that residents and visitors, who are able, immediately shelter in place at their home or place of lodging. Trips outside should be for essential needs only, such as purchasing food, or medical visits. Everyone must wear masks in public.” The order also restricts travel to and from Lāna‘i for essential work or medical purposes only. All other travelers will have to quarantine for 14 days.
