State health officials reported nine new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, including seven on Oahu and two on Maui.

Four of the new Oahu cases are associated with a “new cluster at an urgent care facility, though none of those infected are involved in patient care,” officials with the Hawaii COVID-19 Joint Information Center said in a statement. The Maui cases are under investigation by health officials and are likely associated with travel.

The Department of Health reports 926 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in Hawaii since March.

Five more people were released from isolation on Wednesday, meaning at least 10 days have passed since they first had symptoms, or it’s been at least three days since their symptoms resolved, whichever is longer. Approximately 741 people have fit into that category to date.

It’s been two weeks since the two-week quarantine was lifted for interisland travelers. The mandatory interisland travel and health form is now available for online submission within 24 hours of flight departure.

Passengers are screened for symptoms prior to boarding, and people who have temperatures higher than 100.4 degrees will not be allowed to fly.

A new policy slated to go into effect on Aug. 1 would allow travelers to bypass the mandatory quarantine rule if they have proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

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.
