On the update of the Coronavirus, the number of active cases for Hawaii Island is now at three. None are hospitalized and are being quarantined in their quarters and monitored by Department of Health. Your County government continues to aggressively address programs of prevention and provide credible and timely information to you.
Remember, we can all help stop this threat to our community by practicing good etiquette on coughing and sneezing, by keeping your areas clean, and for now, as hard as it is, for our culture, no handshakes, no high fives, no hugs, and no knuckle to knuckle. Just say high for now.
This is a community issue and we all need to help keep Hawaii safe. You can make a difference. Let’s all work together and Hawaii will come through with a minimum of harm.
Thank you for listening. Thank you for your care.
This is your Hawaii County Civil Defense.”
