The Hawaii Department of Health reports eight (8) new cases of Coronavirus on Hawaii Island with two (2) persons hospitalized. There have been no deaths reported in the last week.
Positive cases of Coronavirus continue to increase both in the State of Hawaii and on the Mainland. Many of the new positive cases we are seeing on Hawaii Island are travel related which emphasizes the importance of exercising caution when traveling trans-Pacific as well as inter-island. We continue to do well because you have been following the preventive policies of face coverings, distancing, and gatherings of no more than 10 people. Thank you. We need to continue to accept this kuleana to keep our family, friends, and community safe.
Thank you for listening and have a safe day.
