Honeymooners arrested in Hawaii after violating mandatory quarantine

A newlywed California couple was arrested on their honeymoon to Hawaii for repeatedly violating the state’s mandatory quarantine for travelers, according to a report.

Borice Leouskiy, 20, and Yuliia Andreichenko, 26, of Citrus Heights, Calif., were read the requirements of the two-week self-quarantine when they arrived Wednesday night to a Waikiki hotel, news station KHON reported.

But the couple scoffed at the directions, claiming they contradicted what airport screeners told them, according to the report.

They told staff that they planned to visit friends and beaches during the isolation period then left the hotel premises, KHON reported.

When they returned, the couple was carrying a pizza and told the manager that they were allowed to leave to buy food, the report said.

The next day, the newlyweds left the hotel again, prompting management to notify authorities, according to the outlet.

The two were arrested on charges for unsworn falsification to authority and violation of the 14-day quarantine.

“We appreciate the vigilance and cooperation of the hotel staff, and staff at other hotels, in helping maintain the health and safety of visitors and residents. It is important that everyone flying into Hawaii at this time, abide by our mandatory rules,” Attorney General Clare Connors said, according to the outlet.
