COVID-19 Quarantine and Stay at Home Citations

covid ticketIf you have been charged with violating any of the COVID restrictions, then you are facing a criminal conviction, a fine of $5,000, and one year in prison. The authority for your charge is found in Hawaii’s Emergency Management Laws and listed on your citation as HRS-127A-25. You will also be given a court date on your citation. You must appear on that date. Currently, court appearances for COVID citations are being held over via Zoom or Webex, but that could change. Sometimes your original court date will be changed. If this occurs, you should receive a notification in the mail, but you can also monitor your case online.

Receiving a criminal citation for what is often an innocent mistake can be stressful. However, an attorney can help you navigate the complicated court process, monitor your court date, and negotiate with prosecutors on your behalf.  For some violators of the Stay at Home or Mandatory Quarantine Order a citation is not all they receive.  Many people are arrested for this crime and have to post bail to leave custody and await trial.  Depending on the facts of your case, your attorney may be able to get your charge amended to a violation, payment of a fine, or even dismissed altogether. The Law Office of Natanyah Ganz handles COVID citation cases on an affordable flat rate basis.
