Officials in Hawaii announced an expansion of the current mandatory, 14-day quarantine for all arriving travelers to include those arriving on inter-island flights as well.

The new measure, announced by Governor David Ige, is part of a push to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus in the state.

The broader quarantine goes into effect Wednesday at 12:01 a.m. local time and will be in effect through the end of April.

“These are unprecedented times,” the governor said at a news conference announcing the new measures.

“In order to protect the health and safety of Hawaii’s people, I along with the county mayors have had to take drastic measures in order to stop the spread of COVID-19,” he said, adding that “more must be done.”
