Rhode Island man among several arrested on Maui for travel quarantine violations

The Maui Police Department arrested a Rhode Island man over the weekend for violation of Maui’s COVID-19 emergency rules and orders.

Police on Saturday said Daniel Kirkutis, 42, of Rhode Island, arrived at Kahului Airport from Los Angeles without a negative pre-travel COVID-19 test from an approved facility, nor approved lodging in which to complete his mandatory, 10-day travel quarantine.

Kirkutis was transported to the Wailuku Police Station for processing without incident. He later volunteered to leave Maui and fly to Vermont.

Several other travel quarantine violations occurred on Maui in August, among them an incident that resulted in a charge of assaulting a law enforcement officer.
