DOH Encourages Parents to Schedule Back-to-School Vaccination, Physical Exams

With the easing of COVID-19 “Safer at Home” restrictions, it is more important than ever to ensure every child’s immunizations and physical examination are up to date. Avoiding check-ups and missing vaccines can put a child at risk for preventable diseases such as measles and whooping cough and could delay a child’s return to school if health requirements are not met. Healthcare provider offices are open and measures are in place to ensure every child’s safety. Parents are urged to call their child’s healthcare provider today to schedule an appointment and discuss any concerns. Health Director Dr. Bruce Anderson said, “School Health Requirements protect not only the health of our students but their families and our communities as well. In light of the current pandemic, it is critically important to ensure our keiki are immunized, to protect them against diseases that can be prevented with vaccines.”

 All students entering schools and child care facilities in Hawai‘i for the first time must meet the state’s immunization, physical exam, and tuberculosis screening requirements. In addition,

before the first day of school, all seventh-grade students must provide documentation of having received a physical examination and vaccinations for Tdap, HPV, and MCV. Immunizations are also required for students attending colleges and universities in Hawai‘i. For more information:

Department of the Attorney General:

Returning Resident Arrested by Special Agents

A 48-year old, Waikīkī area woman was arrested this morning by Special Agents from the Investigation Division of the Dept. of the Attorney General (AG) on quarantine violation charges. An investigation showed that Patricia L.Pian returned to Honolulu from San Diego on May 31. Witnesses reported seeing her swimming in the ocean a few hours after her return. She was also seen sunbathing with her husband and walking their dog.

 

Pian was arrested in the hallway of her condominium building and charged with violating the 14-day mandatory traveler quarantine. She is the first returning resident to be arrested by the AG’s investigators and her bail was set at $2,000.

 

On Monday, a 20-year-old man from South Korea and a 48-year old Virginia woman were arrested by Special Agents on quarantine charges. Jin Wook Lee and Kady C. Swartz were taken into custody at a Waikiki hotel. An investigation showed Lee arrived in Honolulu on May 20 and falsified his place-of-stay. It was discovered he was staying at the hotel with Swartz and her daughter. Hotel personnel witnessed quarantine violations and contacted authorities. They report Lee violated quarantine from the day he arrived. Lee was arrested for committing quarantine violations and Swartz was arrested as an accomplice. Bail for both is set at $2,000.

 

Attorney General Clare Connors said, “As we reopen our economy, it is important that everyone follow the practices and policies in place to keep our community safe. The travel quarantine is an important part of our state’s success in reducing the spread of the disease, and both residents and travelers alike should take care to follow these rules and practices.”
