Frequently Asked Questions

For visitors traveling to Hawai’i right now, how long is the self-quarantine period after arrival?

Governor Ige has mandated a 14-day quarantine for all visitors and residents entering the state. Visitors must remain in their rooms alone during this time or until they depart Hawai’i (whichever is shorter). For more information, see State travel guidance on COVID-19.

Which cleaning products should I use when disinfecting my facilities to prevent spread of COVID-19?

You should switch to and use disinfectant products that have been pre-approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use against emerging viral pathogens. Disinfectants should be applied during routine cleaning of guestrooms, public spaces, health club areas and meeting rooms. The current list of disinfectants with EPA pre-approval is available on the EPA website.
