This is a COVID-19 informational update for Tuesday, December 29th.

The Hawaii Department of Health reports seven (7) new cases of Coronavirus on Hawaii Island with four (4) persons hospitalized.  A total of fifty one (51) deaths have been reported for Hawaii Island.

For your information vaccinations began on Hawaii Island last week targeting our first responders, healthcare and medical providers.  While this is great news, vaccinations for the general population is still months away.  We need to stay healthy with exercise, fresh air, sunlight, cleanliness, and continue to follow the preventive policies of face coverings, distancing, and limiting gatherings of no more than ten people.  We must practice the preventive measures especially during New Year’s celebrations to protect our family, friends, and community.  Please accept this kuleana to follow the preventive measures so we might continue in the New Year as the safest place in the Country.

Mahalo for your kokua in following the preventive measures that have seen us through for 2020.

Thank you for listening and have a safe week.

This is your Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency.
