An 18-year-old Arizona woman has been arrested in Hawaii for breaking the state’s strict self-quarantine rules after she posted photos on social media of herself at the beach.

Police say Alyza Alder flew to Honolulu on May 6 and started posting photos on social media just two days later.

Hawaii has strict orders in place requiring all visitors to self-quarantine for 14 days to help prevent coronavirus from spreading.

Under the state’s order, Alder should have been in self-quarantine until at least Wednesday.

Police say Alder was posting photos of herself at beaches in Laie and Hauula between May 8 and Wednesday.

Photos from her social media accounts show her posing at beaches on May 9 and May 14. 

In one photo caption, Alder wrote that she had just moved to her dream location in Oahu and was ‘loving every minute of it’. 

During the time she should have been quarantining, authorities say she had also been working at a restaurant in Laie.

Alder was arrested at that restaurant on Wednesday afternoon.

She has been charged with violating the state’s quarantine rule and unsworn falsification to authority.

Alder’s bail has been set at $2,000.

Police say someone alerted them to the fact that Alder was violating the state’s quarantine order.

Hawaii currently has 647 infections in the state and 17 deaths.

While the state’s self-quarantine orders remain unchanged, officials have lifted some measures by allowing shopping malls, car washes, pet grooming and in person retail to resume. Restaurants and bars remain closed and beaches are only open for exercise.  

In response to Alder’s arrest, State Attorney General Clare Connors warned that the measures in place were there to protect everyone’s health.

‘We are asking everyone – returning residents and visitors – to abide by our state’s 14-day self-quarantine order,’ she said. 

‘The 14-day self-quarantine rules protect everyone’s health and safety.

‘As we’ve said before, if you come to Hawaii with the expectation that you can ignore the self-quarantine order, you very likely will be reported, arrested and end up in jail facing hefty fines.

‘All of us must do our part to protect ourselves, our families, friends and guests.’
