Officials say both tourists and residents are being arrested after arriving in Kauai either from the mainland or another island.

A majority of those arrested were not at their listed quarantine address during routine checks.

All but one have been released on bail, and some of the mainland travelers have since returned home.

They could all face up to a year in jail and up to $5,000 in fines.

KPD has made 132 arrests for quarantine violations since the pandemic began.
