Department of the Attorney General:

Quarantine Violator Jailed in Honolulu

Last Friday, the general manager of a Waikīkī area hotel reported a guest violating the mandatory 14-day traveler quarantine. Special Agents from the AG’s Investigations Division subsequently arrested 38-year-old Sean Michael Simon of Bangor, Maine. They report he arrived in Hawai‘i on June 10 and hotel video footage captured him leaving the hotel on two separate days. He admitted going to the beach and to shops multiple times, every day. His bail was set at $2,000 and he spent the weekend in jail before his arraignment this morning. Simon pleaded out and was immediately taken to the airport with a one-way ticket back to Maine, paid for by the Visitor Aloha Society of Hawai‘i.

Hawai‘i House of Representatives:

Representatives Call for Robust COVID-19 Testing for Nursing Homes

Rep. John Mizuno, Chair of the House Health Committee, and Rep. Rida Cabanilla, a registered nurse, are asking all nursing homes to comply with recent CDC guidelines, and have COVID-19 testing available for all their residents. Rep. Mizuno said, “It is no secret that our nursing home population, with older adults and many with underlying chronic medical conditions, are at highest risk of being infected by respiratory pathogens like COVID-19. With the recent outbreak of positive COVID-19 cases at nursing homes in Hawaiʻi, it is essential that we have nursing homes and community care homes align with CDC guidelines for testing their staff and patients for COVID-19. The testing will offer a much-needed layer of protection for our elderly and disabled." Rep. Cabanilla said, “We are in the middle of a pandemic, we must learn from the mistakes and devastation of the elderly population in nursing homes everywhere from Seattle to Brazil. As lawmakers we need to implement these CDC guidelines to assure adequate protection of our kupuna and save lives.”
