California Visitors Arrested for COVID-19 Quarantine Violation

The Maui Police Department arrested two California visitors at Kahului Airport on Thursday, Dec. 3 for Rules and Orders.

Investigation reveals that at about 7:59 p.m., 67-year-old Mark Gavin and his adult son 20-year-old Zane Gavin flew into Maui.  Upon arrival, they did not have a negative pre-travel COVID-19 test, as required under Governor Ige’s sixteenth emergency proclamation.

The Gavins were subject to the mandatory 14-day Travel Quarantine, however, they were unable to provide a place of lodging reservation. The Gavins later indicated not knowing about the required negative testing or travel quarantine. 

On Friday, Dec. 4 at about 12 p.m., the Gavins were released from police custody and are voluntarily returning to California.

In Maui County, there are current travel restrictions and mask mandates.

Visitors and residents returning to Maui can check the most current emergency proclamations issued by Governor David Ige and Mayor Michael Victorino, and other travel requirements at Hawaii.gov and Mauicounty.gov.
