This is a COVID-19 informational update for Sunday, January 3rd.

The Hawaii Department of Health reports two (2) new cases of Coronavirus on Hawaii Island with three (3) persons hospitalized.  A total of fifty one (51) deaths have been reported for Hawaii Island.

The coronavirus cases count continues to increase within the State of Hawaii and many celebrations and gatherings were observed during the recent Holidays that may further contribute to the spread of this virus.  It is especially important, as we move into the New Year, to continue following the preventive policies of face coverings, distancing, and limiting gatherings to no more than ten people to reduce any spike of coronavirus cases related to the Holidays.  Please accept this kuleana to follow the preventive measures so we might continue in the New Year as the safest place in the Country.

Please continue in following the preventive measures for 2021.

Thank you for listening and have a safe New Year.
