New COVID-19 data graphs now available

New data diagrams are now posted at LINK The new compiled and posted information includes Hawaii COVID-19 Confirmed Cases by Age Group and Hawaii COVID-19 Cumulative Number of Reported Lab Tests. These tables are in addition to the chart of the Epidemic Curve and Island Maps of Cases by residence zip code. Hover over the diagrams for details of the data numbers used to compile and update the informative charts.

Use of Cloth Face Masks

More people are using cloth face masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings. In addition, it is critical to emphasize that maintaining 6-feet social distancing remains important to slowing the spread of the virus. Cloth face masks are not a substitute for physical distancing, washing hands often, cleaning frequently touched surfaces, and staying home. The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

Department of Defense:

Hawai‘i National Guard Begins Assisting at Airports Tomorrow

Hawaii National Guard (HING) Soldiers and Airmen will be supporting the Hawai‘i Department of Transportation (HDOT) with the medical screening of incoming and departing passengers as well as airline crews, starting tomorrow, April 6 at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport and Hilo International Airport. Support for Kahului Airport, Līhuʻe Airport, and the Ellison Onizuka International Airport at Keāhole will start soon. The Guardsmen will be stationed at the passenger arrival gates and TSA security checkpoints to assist HDOT staff with medical screening. Arriving domestic and international passengers and departing interisland passengers will have their temperatures taken to determine if an additional medical screening is necessary. The Guardsmen will not be armed while conducting this support mission. By Monday, 342 Guardsmen will be activated to assist the county and state with civil support missions.  >> LINK
