The state has seen an average of 189 new cases a day in the last week — up from about an average of 100 cases a month ago.
Monday’s case numbers are based on data reported to the Department of Health by labs across the state on Saturday.
Civil Beat’s virus tracker is updated when the state releases its daily numbers. The state posts new data daily at noon. Daily reports reflect laboratory results collected up until 11:59 p.m. two days prior, leaving a 36-hour lag between when results are submitted to the Department of Health and when the state reports them publicly.
The official state death toll from the virus remains at 309. Civil Beat calculates at least 315 people have died from the disease, including six deaths on Hawaii island confirmed by local county authorities still pending medical verification by the state.
Across the state, 3.3% of people tested during the past week have been confirmed to have COVID-19. On Oahu, that figure is 4.2%.

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.
