Woman caught violating Hawaii’s self-quarantine order after posting beach photos
Alyza Alder, of Arizona, who went to Hawaii on May 6, was arrested Wednesday at a fast-food restaurant she got a job at in Laie, the governor’s office said in a news release.
Between May 8 and Tuesday, Alder posted pictures to social media of herself swimming at beaches in Laie and Hauula, the release said.
Alder, under the state’s order, should have been self-quarantining until Wednesday as a precaution against the coronavirus.
Somebody reported Alder to authorities, who charged her for the violation. Her bail was set at $2,000.
Hawaii’s Attorney General Clare Connors warned against breaking the state’s 14-day self-quarantine order.
“If you come to Hawaii with the expectation that you can ignore the self-quarantine order, you very likely will be reported, arrested and end up in jail facing hefty fines,” Connors said in a statement.
