Stay At Home order requested for Lanai, starting Oct. 27

The County of Maui anticipates issuing a mandatory Stay At Home order for Lanai residents and visitors beginning 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27.

“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 Lanai,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “This date on Tuesday gives enough lead time for visitors and residents to make all necessary arrangements to comply with this mandatory order.”

The County’s request is pending approval by Gov. David Ige. 

“For now, we recommend that residents and visitors, who are able, immediately shelter in place at their home or place of lodging,” Mayor Victorino said. “Trips outside should be for essential needs only, such as purchasing food, or medical visits. Everyone must wear masks in public.”

The County is restricting travel to and from Lanai to only essential work or medical purposes. All other travelers would be required to quarantine for 14 days.

Maui County is requesting that Governor Ige allow changes to Maui County’s Public Health Emergency Rules, without prior state approval.

“This would allow the County to make immediate emergency decisions dealing with public health and safety issues on Maui, Molokai and Lanai,” Mayor Victorino said. “This is important due to the limited medical resources and facilities in our rural communities, such as Molokai and Lanai.”
