Health officials reported 39 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, including seven on Hawaii island and one Hawaii resident diagnosed out of state. The remaining cases were on Oahu.

No new deaths were reported.

There are currently 92 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in Hawaii, including 22 people in intensive care.

Declining rates of new infections could move Oahu into the next phase of the island’s reopening plan soon. Many of the current restrictions imposed under Tier 1 would stay in place in Tier 2 of the plan.

Gatherings would still be limited to five people on Oahu but gyms and fitness centers would be allowed to reopen and operate at 25% capacity under Tier 2. Group fitness classes held outdoors are currently capped at five people, but that would increase to 10 people outdoors and five people for indoor classes. In Tier 2, the current 50% capacity limit on Oahu restaurants would be lifted. A rule that permits only members of the same household to dine together would be lifted as well, but Oahu restaurant tables would still be limited to five people. 

More than 31,000 people have arrived in Hawaii since Thursday, when the state’s pre-travel testing program began for trans-Pacific travelers, Hawaii News Now reported.

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.

Something to consider...

Civil Beat is a small, independent newsroom that provides free content with no paywall. That means readership growth alone can’t sustain our journalism.

The truth is that less than 2% 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.
