This is a COVID-19 informational update for Thursday, February 25th.

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

Thanks to your efforts, Hawaii County has maintained low case numbers for several weeks.  According to data from the Department of Health, nearly 2/3 of the most vulnerable population, our Kupuna, has received at least one dose of the vaccine.  As we await for the vaccine to be more readily available to everyone, we ask that you continue to follow the preventative policies of wearing face coverings, maintaining distance, and keeping our gatherings to no more than 10 persons.

The Department of Health continues to coordinate vaccination points of distribution around the island.  Medical facilities and pharmacies on Hawaii Island are offering vaccine registration to individuals who are 75 and older.  For a list of all the facilities providing vaccinations visit the Civil Defense website.
