  • Hawaii: COVID-19 cases - 9,693 cases, 84 fatalities

    March 4, 2020 at 12:23 PM HST - Updated March 6 at 3:28 PM

    HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Hawaii resident who traveled on a cruise ship that’s been linked to more than two dozen coronavirus cases has tested positive for the virus, the governor said.

    Gov. David Ige said the resident traveled on the Grand Princess in early February and returned home to the islands. The person subsequently sought medical care and was tested.

    “We do not believe there is community spread of this virus at this time,” Ige said.

    The patient contracted the virus on the Grand Princess, which has been linked to a widening cluster of coronavirus.

    Also worrisome: That same vessel made four ports of call in Hawaii on a subsequent voyage.

    On Friday, officials said 21 peo...

        Hawaii Covid19 Cases: 7
        Additional test results received from private laboratories – individuals exposed during out-of-state travel

        As of March 15, 2020, there are a total of seven confirmed positive test results for COVID-19 in Hawai‘i. Three of the seven positive results were announced today for two O‘ahu residents and one visitor on Maui. All of the cases are travel related and were exposed outside of Hawai‘i. The Department of Health received the three recent test results late yesterday from Clinical Labs of Hawaii and immediately notified Honolulu and Maui Counties and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The two O‘ahu residents are recovering in self-isolation at home and the Maui visitor is in isolation at a Lahaina facility away from the public. The Department of Health is monitoring all of these individuals and supervising their isolation as well as the self-quarantine of their family members.

        A total of approximately 80 test results received from Clinical Labs of Hawaii yesterday are being reviewed by the Department of Health. Three of the test results were positive and the rest of the test results were negative. Some of the negative reports were duplicated and required additional review.

        Isolation and quarantine help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease. Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick. Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.

        DOE extends spring break through March 27 for all public schools

        The Hawaiʻi State Department of Education (HIDOE) is extending its spring break through March 27 for all public and charter school students. The Department will use the additional time from March 23-27 to plan for implementation of social distancing within the school setting, arrange for professional development to support modified operations, and thoroughly clean schools. View the news release online here.

        DOH Guidance on Public Events and Group Gatherings

        To protect the public’s health and wellbeing, the Hawa‘i Department of Health is recommending large, crowded gatherings or public events be postponed or canceled. The Department of Health is recommending gatherings held in enclosed spaces that do not allow social distancing also be postponed or canceled or held virtually. When possible, attendees should be about two-arms-length or six feet apart. Elderly adults and those with underlying health conditions who are at a greater risk for COVID-19 or respiratory illnesses should avoid attending large public gatherings.

        Wilcox Medical Center offering COVID-19 drive-up specimen collection

        Wilcox, along with Hawai‘i Pacific Health’s three O‘ahu medical centers – Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children, Pali Momi Medical Center and Straub Medical Center – began offering drive-up specimen collections on Friday, March 13. Regular hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

        Patients need a physician order for the test, along with a photo ID and insurance card. So, it’s very important for people to know that if they are interested in being tested, they need to contact their doctor first. Their doctor will determine the need for testing based on a number of factors, including symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, shortness of breath), travel history and/or other concerns for COVID-19. Should their doctor decide that the patient meets the criteria for COVID-19 testing, their doctor will provide a lab order for the test.

        The Queen’s Medical Center – Punchbowl

        The Queen’s Medical Center – Punchbowl has established a triage center. A tent has been set up to screen patients for COVID-19 from 10 am to 6 pm daily. Only symptomatic people at risk who have doctor’s orders will be tested. The tent is only for those with mild to moderate flu-like symptoms. Patients that need any significant level of care will be triaged into the main emergency room. Other healthcare facilities, including those on the neighbor islands, also have plans to establish similar COVID-19 testing sites.


        Extended Hours for Public Calls to AUW 2-1-1 on COVID-19

        Aloha United Way has extended its public call center hours to 7 a.m. – 10 p.m., 7 days a week. For more information or questions about COVID-19:

          Hawaii as of March 16 Covid19 cases:10


          COVID-19 DAILY UPDATE MARCH 16, 2020

          Posted on Mar 16, 2020 in COVID-19
          Three new confirmed cases of COVID-19 identified on O‘ahu and Maui

          As of March 16, 2020, as of 3:30 pm, there are a total of 10 confirmed or presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 in Hawai‘i. Three new positive results were announced today for two O‘ahu residents, and one visitor on Maui. The Department of Health (DOH) is monitoring all of these individuals and supervising their isolation as well as the self-quarantine of their family members. 

          COVID-19 testing is not for individuals who are well or experiencing mild to moderate flu-like symptoms

          To help manage available healthcare resources for the public statewide, DOH advises everyone to take the following steps:
          1. Stay home if you are experiencing mild to moderate flu-like symptoms.
          2. Call ahead to your healthcare provider before going to a healthcare
          3. If your doctor would like you to come in for a screening, bring a photo ID and insurance card.
          4. If your doctor decides that you meet the criteria for COVID-19 testing, he or she will provide a lab order for the test and take the swab for testing.
          5. The specimen will be sent to a private or state lab for the results.



          List of screening sites statewide now available on DOH website

          A current list of Hawai‘i healthcare facilities offering screening for potential candidates for COVID-19 testing is now available on the DOH website at health.hawaii.gov/updates. A screening determines if a person meets the criteria for a COVID-19 test. The actual test involves taking a swab from the back a person’s nose and throat to test for the virus.

          Definitions of isolation and quarantine

          Isolation and quarantine help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease. Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick. Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.

          DOH updates guidance on public events and group gatherings

          To protect the public’s health and wellbeing, the Hawa‘i Department of Health is recommending for the next eight weeks that large, crowded gatherings or public events of 50 or more attendees be postponed, canceled or held virtually. When possible, attendees should be about two-arms-length or six feet apart. Elderly adults and those with underlying health conditions who are at a greater risk for COVID-19 infection or respiratory illnesses should avoid attending public gatherings.

              0 New Coronavirus Cases Reported In Hawaii

              1
              An influx of more than 1,000 private laboratory samples resulted in 10 new coronavirus cases Thursday, taking the state tally to 26.
              By Eleni Gill / About 14 mins ago
              On Thursday the number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Hawaii jumped from 16 to 26 cases, state Health officials said.

              All 10 new cases were found by commercial laboratories that have conducted more than 1,000 tests. Eight of the cases involved Oahu residents and two involved Maui residents.

              “All of our cases as far as we know have a travel history or are individuals who have been exposed to someone who has been traveling,” said Department of Health Director Bruce Anderson. “That’s significant. We believe at this time there’s no evidence of extensive community transmission in the state of Hawaii.”..https://www.civilbeat.org/2020/03/10...ted-in-hawaii/
