Numbers of arrivals to the islands continue to grow, as tallies have crept over 2,000 people daily.

On Friday, 2,372 people arrived in Hawai‘i. During this same time last year, approximately 35,000 passengers arrived in the state daily, including residents and visitors.

The state’s mandatory, 14-day self-quarantine started on March 26, 2020, for all passengers arriving in Hawai‘i from outside of the state.

The data was collected from the Hawai‘i Department of Transportation’s Mandatory Travel Declaration Form. It does not include interisland travel data.
