Hawaii health officials reported 64 new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, including four on Hawaii island, two on Kauai, and 53 on Oahu.

Officials recorded five more cases among Hawaii residents out of state.

VIRUS TRACKER UPDATE

Increases in the average daily cases on Oahu over the last two weeks could delay the island’s move to Tier 3.

Oahu Mayor Kirk Caldwell urged Oahu residents to “double down” and get the island back on track to ease restrictions at a press conference held Monday. If cases start going down, the soonest Oahu could move to Tier 3 would be the day before Thanksgiving.

Gatherings of up to 10 people would be allowed in Tier 3, but Oahu must maintain a seven-­day average of 49 or fewer daily cases, and a seven-day average positivity rate below 2.49% for two weeks straight.

Civil Beat calculates at least 238 people have died from the disease in Hawaii including 17 deaths on Hawaii island that have not been recorded yet by the Department of Health due to medical verification lags. The statewide official death toll is 221.

There are currently 75 people hospitalized in Hawaii with the disease.

An average of about 4,400 tests are conducted daily.

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.
