This is a Civil Defense message.
This is a COVID-19 informational update for Monday morning, April 13th.
On today’s report of COVID-19, the total number of people tested positive for Hawaii Island is 36. From this, 25 have been cleared as recovered by the Department of Health, and the remaining 11 are quarantined at home and closely monitored by your Department of Health. At this date, no one for Hawaii Island, had to be hospitalized.
The State’s proclamation of Stay at Home and its policies of physical distancing, closures, gatherings, and travel remains in effect. These policies all have one major purpose; it is to help stop the spread of the coronavirus from those who may have it and do not know it, to those who do not have it.
Remember, just as important that within the policies of ‘Stay at Home’, keep yourself physically and emotionally healthy as best as you can. This is a community issue and your help is needed.
