From the Hawaiʻi County Civil Defense:
The Hawaii Department of Health reports four (4) new cases of Coronavirus on Hawaii Island with three (3) persons hospitalized. There have been no deaths reported in the last two weeks.
Positive cases remain at alarmingly high levels globally and nationally which in turn is contributing to the travel related positive cases on Hawaii Island. Key to our safety is following the preventive policies of face coverings, distancing, and gatherings of no more than 10 people. We need to get better at following the preventive measures to keep our family, friends, and community safe. Please accept this kuleana so we may continue to make Hawaii a safe community.
For your information, covid-19 vaccinations have been occurring throughout our island and distribution will be expanded in the coming week. Information will be shared soon on how to register and schedule an appointment along with when and where vaccinations will be available.
Thank you for listening and have a safe day.
