LIHU‘E – Four new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed on Kaua‘i, Tuesday by the Hawai‘i State Department of Health Kaua‘i District Health Office.
All of the four new cases are Kaua‘i residents. Two of the cases are male and female children whose sources of infection are considered travel-related. The other two are adult females with no history of travel or specific contact with travelers. Their sources of infection are considered community-acquired.
Contacts are being identified, directed to quarantine, and offered testing. Several close contacts identified had already been fully vaccinated and therefore are not subject to quarantine. They will self-monitor for symptoms.
Kaua‘i District Health Officer Janet Berreman is still urging all residents aged 16 years and older to be vaccinated as soon as possible
