Reporting Lag

Across the state, 3.5% of people tested during the past week have been confirmed to have COVID-19.

That positivity rate is influenced by increasing case rates on Oahu and Maui County. On Oahu, 4.5% of people tested last week were confirmed to have COVID-19, with an average of 103 new infections recorded daily.

In Maui County, 3.5% of people tested during the last week had positive results, with an average of 27 new cases reported daily.

Hawaii County’s testing positivity rate is 2.3% and Kauai County’s is 0.8%.

More than 25,470 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the state, most of them on Oahu, according to new information posted online by health authorities.
