Three new COVID-19 diagnoses were verified on Oahu by state health officials on Thursday.
To date, 647 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the islands, according to numbers released daily by the Hawaii Department of Health.
More than 90% of people diagnosed have been “released from isolation,” meaning they’ve gone at least three days without a fever and muscle pain, or at least 10 days have passed since the onset of symptoms.
On Oahu, hair salons and barbershops are slated to open Friday, along with outdoor operations like the Honolulu Zoo and Sea Life Park. Restaurants and offices are planned to reopen on Friday, June 5. Later in June, theaters, museums and gyms will likely receive the green light to open.
