The statewide cumulative case count reached 621 on Monday, with the addition of one new infection confirmed by the Department of Health on Hawaii island.
Statewide, four new recoveries were reported. A total of 548 people have recovered enough to be released from isolation — about 88% of those diagnosed to date.
Hawaii County’s cumulative infection count reached 75 on Monday, but 63 of the people with confirmed infections are now in recovery. One person is hospitalized on the Big Island, and 63 people have recovered to date, according to the health department.
Oahu’s cumulative case count remained at 400, including 374 recoveries documented by the health department. Fifty-three people have required hospitalization on Oahu to date, and another 11 people have died.

On Sunday, Maui’s sixth death related to the coronavirus was confirmed. The woman who died was older than 60 and had been hospitalized for other medical issues since February at Maui Memorial Medical Center. Her COVID-19 infection occurred in mid-April. The hospital is the site of a cluster of cases affecting both staff and patients.
Across the islands, 73 people have been hospitalized to date, including some Hawaii residents hospitalized out of state. Patients who do not require hospitalization recuperate at home in isolation and only qualify to be released when at least 14 days of quarantine have passed and their symptoms have subsided.
The state has registered 17 deaths in relation to COVID-19 since March.
Hawaii is still under a stay-at-home order through the end of May but some restrictions have been lifted.
Those who are not under mandatory quarantine are allowed to exercise on beaches and at some public parks if they abide by six-foot social distancing guidelines. Florists are back open for business. Gov. David Ige said Monday that other kinds of “low-contact” retail operations will soon be given approval to reopen.
