It looks like now that more information is out, she was traveling with parents. This was very irresponsible of them, and quite possibly illegal.March 21, 2020 @ 1855 (Update) -- The teenager was tested in Mainland Japan. Okinawa prefecture explained that this case is not included in the count of Okinawa infections—which remains at 3, even though she is being treated locally—because airports around Japan fall under the jurisdiction of the prefecture that the test was conducted in.
The official in charge also explicitly told the family members, to be adults, to remain in place, in which they didn't.Article 13
(1) The quarantine station chief may examine a person and the vessel etc. prescribed in the preceding article to see whether or not there are any quarantinable infectious disease-causing pathogens, and may assign a quarantine officer to the job.
(2) With respect to the examination specified in the preceding paragraph, the quarantine station chief may carry out an autopsy or may assign a quarantine officer to do the job, if necessary, in order to conduct an examination as specified in the preceding paragraph. In this case, if an autopsy is needed in order to investigate the cause of death, or it is obvious that the aims of autopsy will not be achieved if an answer from the bereaved families is delayed because where they family is residing is not known, or they live in a distant place, it is not necessary for a quarantine station chief to obtain the permission of the bereaved families.
(Instructions for Unloading etc.)
Article 13-2 The quarantine station chief may give instructions to the master of the vessel etc. to unship or produce the cargo for an examination as specified in Paragraph 1 of the preceding article if it is deemed difficult to carry out an examination of the cargo on board as specified in the preceding paragraph.

We'll keep you posted on all cases as news comes out.
You can look at it that way, R naught aside, for now. It's a very optimistic outlook on things that seemingly look grim in the news.So this is kinda good news...3 new threats to community spread in 2 days but not community spread
Okinawa's capacity to test is only 9 per day.but where tight testing & quarantine procedures could have prevented this
Apologize about this one, @Mina. It was grouped into another news report that we ran across. However, if I recollect, we were going to use an English translation that also said he came into contact with several guests at the hotel and other people close to him prior to checking into the southern treatment center for COVID-19 patients.What about the man working at a hotel in Naha City infected with the coronavirus? Is he the 4th case, the man in his 20s?
Per an early morning conference on March 24 with Okinawa's Governor, Tamaki Denny, a few things were clarified regarded the foreign national in his 20s working the front desk of Hotel Royal Orion in Naha City found to be positive for COVID-19 on March 23:What about the man working at a hotel in Naha City infected with the coronavirus? Is he the 4th case, the man in his 20s?
This article is confusing when automatically translated to English as it could make some assume he was either in Tokyo or in contact with the male in his 40s when natively read. Neither of that was true: he was one of 11 people tested for COVID-19 on March 25, 2020.
