City and County of Honolulu to phase out isolation and quarantine facilities

HONOLULU -- Over the past three months, the City and County of Honolulu was able to provide isolation and quarantine (ISO/Q) accommodations for over 215 individuals and families on O‘ahu who otherwise did not have a safe place to do so. The number of rooms needed for ISO/Q on O‘ahu has dropped from 58 in January 2022, to less than five by mid-March 2022. As of March 23rd, only two people remained in ISO/Q. As a result of decreased need, the City and County of Honolulu will no longer be using the Harbor Arms in ‘Aiea and the West Loch Modular building in ‘Ewa Beach as ISO/Q facilities.

"My sincere thanks to our non-profit partners Aloha United Way and Banquet Solutions Hawaii, as well as North Shore Mental Health for their expert services protecting the public health of the people of the City and County of Honolulu," said Mayor Rick Blangiardi. "With their help, along with the hard work from multiple City departments, we were able to continue services at Harbor Arms when statewide coordinated ISO/Q operations by the State of Hawai‘i ceased operations in December. We were even able to stand up an additional ISO/Q facility at West Loch on short notice when nearly 300 COVID-19 patients were filling up our hospital beds each day at the end of January. This entire ISO/Q effort between our contract service providers and City departments is an example of teamwork at its finest."

Both City facilities will now transition to serve their original purpose as affordable housing for individuals or couples at or below 60% of the area median income. West Loch Modular, which has been vacant since the end of February 2022, is ready to welcome its first residents on April 1, 2022. Harbor Arms will continue to house the two ISO/Q occupants at the facility before transitioning to much-needed affordable housing.

In the event future COVID-19 case counts generate a need for ISO/Q units on O‘ahu, the City and County of Honolulu is positioned to stand-up an ISO/Q facility at the City's Resource Center in ‘Iwilei. The 27-unit complex is located at the former Montgomery Motors location and also includes a commercial kitchen.

The City will continue to monitor current and future conditions and consult with our leaders in healthcare as we navigate the changing COVID-19 pandemic. Residents are encouraged to prioritize good public health practices, get vaccinated and boosted to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.
