 Update on Maui Memorial Medical Center COVID-19 Cluster

Since mid-March through April 7, fifteen (15) healthcare workers at Maui Memorial Medical Center (MMMC) have been identified as COVID-19 positive by MMMC infection control staff. Four (4) patients are under investigation as potentially linked to this cluster. Since April 8 an additional 90 healthcare personnel and 36 patients have been tested. Some results are pending, but an additional seven (7) staff and five (5) patients have tested positive, bringing the total number of people (healthcare workers and patients) under investigation to 31 as of yesterday. By tomorrow the hospital will have notified 194 patients who received care at MMMC by affected healthcare workers. DOH is assisting with telephone outreach and testing of impacted patients and healthcare providers is ongoing.

 

Rely Only on Official Information, Even When It Looks Official

The discovery of an official looking warning poster, put up in West O‘ahu, prompts a reminder that people should check with official sources like the Dept. of Health or the Hawai‘i COVID-19 Joint Information Center to determine whether any posted information is accurate. People should refrain from creating any type of “official” seeming posters, pamphlets, documents, or social media posts as they can mislead people.

 

Free Downloadable Physical Distancing Posters & Infographics

Free, downloadable, multi-lingual, physical distancing posters and infographics for posting and social media use are available. Languages featured are English with Hawaiian, Japanese, Tagalog, Ilocano, Korean, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, Samoan, Vietnamese, Marshallese and Chuckese. Businesses and individuals are welcome and encouraged to post these widely.  Please continue to practice good physical distancing measures this Easter holiday weekend.
