LIHU‘E —The Kaua‘i District Health Office Saturday reported two new positive cases of COVID-19. The current number of active cases now stands at 7 as several individuals were recently released from isolation. The cumulative total of cases to date is 40.
Both new cases are residents, one adult and one child. They are unrelated to each other and have no known connection to the recent outbreak on Kaua‘i.
The state Department of Health (DOH) continues to gather more information, but at least one case appears to be travel related.
Both cases are in isolation and contact investigations are ongoing. Close contacts will be identified and notified directly by DOH personnel and offered a test. Updates on new positive cases will be announced as they are confirmed.
As a reminder, officials urge the public to refrain from large gatherings with people outside of your immediate household. If you must go out, wear a mask, keep your physical distance from others, and stay outdoors as much as possible.
