Violate Hawaii’s Travel Restrictions and You, Too, Can be Arrested

Two Californians were arrested for producing fake COVID-19 test results to avoid a mandatory traveler quarantine to help curb the virus spreading across the Hawaiian islands.

A 34-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman uploaded falsified negative test results into the Hawaii Safe Travels portal and arrived in Lihue on an American Airlines flight from Los Angeles earlier this week

After they were arrested, they were released pending investigation and caught a flight back to Los Angeles.

They couldn’t immediately be reached for comment Friday.
