From the Hawaiʻi County Civil Defense:
The Hawaii Department of Health reports twelve (12) new cases of Coronavirus on Hawaii Island with two (2) persons hospitalized. There have been no deaths reported in the last week.
The coronavirus case count continues to increase within the State of Hawaii and many celebrations and gatherings were observed during the recent Holidays that may further contribute to the spread of this virus. It is especially important, as we move into the New Year, to continue following the preventive policies of face coverings, distancing, and limiting gatherings to no more than ten people to reduce any spike of coronavirus cases related to the Holidays.
Additionally residents and visitors who have traveled outside Hawaii need be especially cautious due to the levels of coronavirus outside of Hawaii. Please accept this kuleana to follow the preventive measures so we might continue in the New Year as the safest place in the Country.
Thank you for listening and have a safe day.
