Thirty-eight of the cases were found on Oahu, where officials say the virus is circulating most. Two non-Hawaii residents were also diagnosed in the islands.
To date, the Hawaii Department of Health has verified 1,071 cases since the state first reported a coronavirus case in March. July has brought some of the highest daily counts Hawaii has seen since the first wave of infection occurred in April.
State officials said Monday that continued double-digit increases could trigger the closure of some businesses such as gyms, bars or dine-in areas at restaurants.
Approximately 119 of the cases have required hospitalization to date. About three-quarters of people verified to have COVID-19 by Hawaii officials have qualified to be released from isolation. People should stay in isolation until at least three days after fever and muscle pains have resolved without the use of medicine, or at least 10 days have passed since symptoms began, according to department guidelines.

Support local journalism
Studies have shown that when local journalism disappears, government financing costs go up, fewer people run for public office, elected officials become less responsive to their constituents, and voter turnout decreases. Our small nonprofit newsroom works hard every day to present local news in a deep and transparent way, without fear or favor. We also rely on donations from readers like you to keep us afloat. The more support we receive; the stronger, more sustainable our journalism becomes; the more accountable we are to you. Please consider supporting our Honolulu Civil Beat with a tax-deductible gift.
