A woman who traveled to Hawaii was caught defying the state’s quarantine order by posting photos of herself at the beach two days after arriving, officials said.
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.
