  • Will you, anyone in your household, or anyone with whom you have had close contact with, traveled out of the State of Hawaii in the last 14 days prior to your check-in date?

Upon check-in, any guest that answers “yes” to any of the above questions will be denied entry to the Y, regardless of any reservation.

The Y will terminate the stay of any guest unwilling to follow these guidelines.
