This is a COVID-19 informational update for Sunday morning, April 19th.
On today’s report of COVID-19, the total number of people who tested positive for Hawaii Island is 61. From this, 31 have been cleared as recovered and the remaining 30 are quarantined at home and monitored by the Department of Health. At this date, no one tested positive for Hawaii Island had to be hospitalized.
This high increase over the past week stems mainly from the fast food establishments; which have been closed. This so clearly demonstrates how important it is to follow the health advisories of Stay at Home if you are sick, Physical Distancing, Face Coverings, and Social Gatherings. The magnitude of this cluster outbreak could have been avoided.
For your information drive through testing will be conducted today at the Hilo Civic from 9 this morning till 1 in the afternoon, it is free. Know that early testing means early detection and early care.
Thank you, Premiere Medical Group, Bay Clinic, and the Hawaii County Task Force for conducting this testing.
Thank you for listening and have a peaceful day.
This is your Hawaii County Civil Defense.”
