The Kaua‘i District Health Office today reported one new positive case of COVID-19. This brings Kaua‘i’s total number of active cases to one, and the cumulative total of cases to date is now 58.
The new case is a female resident who is currently in isolation. The source of her infection appears to be related to mainland travel, and the case has been in travel quarantine since her return to Kaua‘i.
The Department of Health completed its contact tracing investigation and all close contacts have been directed to quarantine and offered a test.
As a reminder, this virus is widespread in our state and it continues to be important for everyone to be careful on Kaua‘i – wear your masks, keep your distance, and avoid large gatherings.
