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.
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.

Before you go
Civil Beat readership has more than doubled in the past nine months. That’s incredible growth for which we’re so grateful.
But for a small nonprofit newsroom that provides free content with no paywall, readership growth alone can’t sustain our journalism. The truth is that less than 1% of our monthly readers are financial supporters.
To remain a viable business model for local news, we need a higher percentage of readers-turned-donors.
