Free Meal Program Extended for Students at 203 Hawai‘i Dept. of Education Schools 

Hawai‘i DOE’s free Grab-and-Go meal program is being extended for students at 203 schools from today through Dec. 18, 2020. The announcement comes after the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture announced it would extend funding for its Summer Food Service Program. Hawai‘i’s First Lady Dawn Ige said, “Parents left unemployed or underemployed due to COVID-19 may be faced with significant shortfalls to the family budget. Getting free breakfast and lunch for their children at school can make a big difference. We intend to make full use of these federal funds to provide healthy meal options for local families through the Grab-and-Go meal program."

The Grab-and-Go program offers any student, ages 18 or younger, nutritious meals for breakfast and lunch. All parents or guardians need to do is pick up the meals curbside to take home. Through the spring and summer, the State prepared close to 1.3 million meals for students, and it expects to see the same level of participation through the fall as most students are learning from home this semester. Free breakfast and lunch meals can be picked up during lunchtime from any of the 203 participating Hawai‘i DOE schools. Please contact your school for specific times. A list of those schools and verification documents needed can be found online at www.ainapono.org/grabandgo. To view more:

PSD has been notified that three (3) Hawai‘i inmates at the Saguaro Correctional Center in Eloy, Arizona tested positive for COVID-19. The first positive inmate case was confirmed on Friday. The three (3) were awaiting their test results which were received today. The four (4) inmates are being medically isolated. A total of 262 Hawai‘i inmates in three (3) housing pods were placed on a precautionary 14-day quarantine.

Meanwhile, a Women’s Community Correctional Center (WCCC) employee has reported a positive test result. The employee last worked on Friday, Oct. 9.  No WCCC inmates have reported symptoms. PSD is working with DOH on contact tracing. The facility staff sanitized the spaces where the employee worked. 

 

PSD’s Health Care Division is working with DOH, the Hawai‘i National Guard, and community partners to conduct mass testing for COVID-19 at all correctional facilities statewide. The Maui Community Correctional Center received 29 more negative staff results over the weekend. The Kaua‘i Community Correctional Center began their inmate testing this week. Halawa Correctional Facility, Waiawa Correctional Facility, and WCCC have concluded their broad-based testing of staff and inmates. There were no inmates with confirmed active COVID-19 test results at these facilities.  

 

DOH testing of OCCC inmates is ongoing. No new test results were received today. Over the weekend 46 inmate test results were received. Of the 46 results, three (3) were positive and 43 were negative. There are no inmates hospitalized. The number of inmates who have recovered jumped from 359 to 382.  All 42 OCCC staff results received over the weekend were negative. The total number of PSD staff who have recovered and returned to work increased to 100. Information on PSD’s planning and response to COVID-19 can be found at:

House Select Committee Meets to Discuss Pre-Travel Testing, Rental Property Reports  

The House Select Committee on COVID-19 Economic and Financial Preparedness held an informational briefing today to discuss the governor’s emergency proclamation regarding pre-travel testing, which launches on Thursday, Oct. 15, as well as a new University of Hawai‘i Economic Research Organization (UHERO) Survey that details the impacts COVID-19 has had on Hawai‘i’s rental properties. According to the survey, Hawai‘i’s GDP fell by 40-percent, and researchers don’t expect that number to lift until travel resumes. Briefings are still being held online in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. To watch them:
