Authorities have warned there would likely be a spike in cases following the holidays.

Roughly 15% of cases diagnosed in December were associated with travel, with the bulk of cases in Hawaii being spread in the community.

The official state death toll from the virus remained at 289. Civil Beat calculates at least 294 people have died from the disease in Hawaii, including five deaths on Hawaii island that are still pending medical verification by the state.
