ISOLATE OR ELSE: Hawaii Gov Threatens ‘Jail Time’ for Those Violating Mandatory Quarantine  

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.24.20

Hawaii Governor David Ige directly warned individuals planning on violating his state’s mandatory 14-day quarantine for all travelers to the islands Tuesday; saying offenders could face a potential jail sentence during the Coronavirus crisis.

“People who go outside for reasons other than health care, food, picking up education materials, taking care of others, or exercise between March 25 and April 30 can be charged with a misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $5,000 fine,” reports Fox News.

“The threat of COVID-19 is unprecedented and requires aggressive action,” Ige said in a statement. “I have been in discussions with our county mayors who are developing their own plans to meet the unique needs of their counties. We also agree that a statewide order is necessary for cohesion and consistency.”

“In New York, the state hit hardest by coronavirus so far, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced lockdown measures that went into place Sunday evening. Businesses that violate the order can be shut down and fined, although there has been no talk of penalties against individuals,” adds Fox.
