This is a COVID-19 informational update for Friday, January 8th.
The Hawaii Department of Health reports ten (10) new cases of Coronavirus on Hawaii Island with two (2) persons hospitalized. There have been no deaths reported in the last week.
Do know that many of the new positive cases we are seeing on Hawaii Island are travel related which emphasizes the importance of exercising caution during trans-Pacific and inter-island travel. We continue to do well within our communities and key to our safety is following the preventive policies of face coverings, distancing, and gatherings of no more than 10 people. We need your help to continue to accept this kuleana to keep our family, friends, and community safe.
Thank you for listening and have a safe Aloha Friday.
