This is a COVID-19 informational update for Monday, February 22nd.

The Hawaii Department of Health reports two (2) new cases of Coronavirus with one (1) person hospitalized on Hawaii Island.  There have been no deaths reported in the last eight weeks.

Hawaii County has maintained consistently low case numbers for several weeks.  Please continue your efforts in following the preventive measures so that we may remain one of the safest communities in the nation.  This means wearing face coverings, maintaining distance, and keeping our gatherings to no more than 10 persons for the next several months until more people are vaccinated.  Mahalo for your kokua.

The Department of Health continues to coordinate vaccination points of distribution around the island to inoculate medical personnel, first responders and critical workers from the virus.  Everyone will have an opportunity to be vaccinated as more vaccine becomes available. The Hilo Medical Center (HMC), North Hawaii Community Hospital (QNHCH) and the Kona Community Hospital (KCH) continue to offer vaccine registration to individuals who are 75 and older.  Please visit their websites for more information and to register.




Maintaining the safety and health of our County is a community effort, and we are thankful for your participation.  Thank you for listening and have a safe Day.
