Health officials reported one death on Oahu and 83 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, including 68 cases on Oahu, 14 on Hawaii island and one on Kauai.

There are currently 118 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in Hawaii, including 22 people in intensive care — a significant decrease from late August when more than 270 people with the virus needed hospital care.

On Saturday, Gov. David Ige announced a testing program to allow interisland travelers to bypass a mandatory 14-day quarantine on Kauai and Maui with a negative COVID-19 test from authorized labs.

The interisland program is similar to the pre-travel testing system for travelers arriving from outside the state. Travelers need to take a FDA-authorized Nucleic Acid Amplification Test within 72 hours of departing.

Roughly 18,000 people flew to Hawaii on Thursday and Friday — the first two days of the state’s pre-travel testing program for trans-Pacific travelers.

The state’s official COVID-19 death toll stands at 187 but that does not include nearly 20 coronavirus-related fatalities in Hawaii County due to reporting lags. At least 205 people have died from the disease in Hawaii.
