Hawaii has a mandatory 14-day quarantine on all incoming travelers in addition to a state-wide lockdown. Recent figures show that the number of new cases is dropping to almost nothing:
Once the active cases go to zero, it should be possible to lift the lockdown so long as the quarantine on travelers remains in effect.
Hawaii’s geography is unique, but can similar quarantines be a path to opening up the rest of the US?
Can a quarantine on incoming travelers combined with vigorous testing and follow up of any remaining cases that leak through allow large portions of the country to open up without risking an epidemic?
