This is a COVID-19 informational update for Monday, January 11th.
The Hawaii Department of Health reports twenty (20) new cases of Coronavirus on Hawaii Island with two (2) persons hospitalized. There have been no deaths reported in the last two weeks.
Positive cases remain at alarmingly high levels globally and nationally which in turn is contributing to the many travel related positive cases on Hawaii Island. Key to our safety is following the preventive policies of face coverings, distancing, and gatherings of no more than 10 people. We need to get better at following the preventive measures to keep our family, friends, and community safe. Please accept this kuleana so we may continue to make Hawaii a safe community.
For your information, covid-19 vaccinations have been occurring throughout our island and those receiving the vaccine include the most vulnerable and those in the medical and health care industry as well as first responders and critical workers. Information will be shared for when and where vaccinations will be available as the Department of Health expands the vaccine program to include more of the community.
Thank you for listening and have a safe week.
This is your Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency.
