This is a COVID-19 informational update for Sunday, February 28th.

The Hawaii Department of Health reports four (4) new cases of Coronavirus with two (2) people hospitalized on Hawaii Island.  There have been no deaths reported in the last eight weeks.

While our numbers on Hawaii Island remain low we are reminded there is still community and travel related transmission of the coronavirus and we must continue following the preventative policies of wearing face coverings, maintaining distance, and keeping our gatherings to no more than 10 persons. The Department of Health reports that nearly 60% of the most vulnerable population has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine statewide.  Please continue your efforts to keep Hawaii safe for our family and community.

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.
