Please maintain your efforts in following the preventive measures so that we may continue to have low case numbers and be one of the safest communities in the nation. This means we need to wear face coverings, maintain our distances and keep our gatherings to no more than 10 persons for the next several months until more are vaccinated. Mahalo for your kokua.
The Department of Health continues to coordinate vaccination points of distribution around the island to inoculate medical personnel, first responders and critical workers from the virus. Everyone will have an opportunity to be vaccinated as more vaccine becomes available. The Hilo Medical Center (HMC), North Hawaii Community Hospital (QNHCH) and the Kona Community Hospital (KCH) continue to offer vaccine registration to individuals who are 75 and older. Please visit their websites for more information and to register.
Maintaining the safety and health of our County is a community effort, and we are thankful for your participation.
Thank you for listening and have a safe Day.
