Alder arrived in O‘ahu on May 6 and days later began posting photos of herself at beaches in Laie and Hauula. Investigators said that during the time she should have been under quarantine, Alder got a job at a local restaurant.

She was arrested after a local resident reported to authorities that Alder was allegedly in violation of the emergency order.

She’s being held on a $2,000 bail and faces charges of violating the order and for “unsworn falsification to authority,” according to the release.

It is not clear if Alder has legal representation.

“The 14-day self-quarantine rules protect everyone’s health and safety,” attorney general Clare Connors said in a statement. “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.”
