Hawai‘i COVID-19 Cases

News Release from Hawaii DoH, November 10, 2020 (two sections)

SOURCE FOR THIS SECTION: (updated daily at 1200)

On 11/10/2020, the Hawai‘i Department of Health reported 78 new positive cases. There are 4 cases on Hawai‘i Island, 5 on Maui, 62 on O‘ahu, and 9 out of state for a cumulative total of 16,088 cases statewide (reported since 2/28/2020). Two previous cases were removed from Kaua‘i and added to out of state cases due to updated laboratory information. In the coming days, this update will be removed and people will be directed to the data dashboard for the daily case numbers on each island.

A total of 574,852 tests have been performed and results received for the state.

(4,844 new tests by subtraction**)

(3,042 neg + 67 pos = 3,109 new tests per dashboard.)

NOTE: Per DoH, dashboard test numbers are distributed by the date the test was performed, not the date result was reported.  Additional results will be added to each day's dashboard total over then next few days as late test results trickle in.  Subtraction method includes tests and new cases from tests performed prior to today.  

78 / 4,844 = 1.6% positive per subtraction

67 / 3,109 = 2.2% positive per dashboard

Required Hospitalization:1180‡ (up 20***)

* As a result of updated information, two cases on Kauai were recategorized to Hawaii residents diagnosed outside of the state.

**Using cases reported in the past 14 days provides a rough approximation of the number of cases currently meeting criteria for isolation. This proxy number for “active cases” resolves classification issues for cases unable to be reached or who are out of jurisdiction, for whom precise release from isolation date may not be possible to determine. It is also not influenced by lags in data entry.

(***HFP EDITOR’s NOTE: Numbers marked with ‘***’ are derived by subtracting yesterday’s total from today’s.)

†One case is a Lanai resident whose exposure is on Maui Island and who will be remaining on Maui Island for the interim.

‡Includes Hawaii residents hospitalized out of state.

§Includes cases that meet isolation release criteria (Isolation should be maintained until at least 3 days (72 hours) after resolution of fever and myalgia without the use of antipyretics OR at least 10 days have passed since symptom onset, whichever is longer). (The cases that have died and one case that has left the jurisdiction have been removed from these counts).

Positive cases include presumptive and confirmed cases, and Hawaii residents and non-residents; data are preliminary and subject to change. Note that CDC provides case counts according to states of residence.

Safe Travels Hawaiʻi COVID-19 Evaluation Testing Program Update  

Since last week’s update on Nov. 3, results of the Safe Travels Testing Evaluation Program show a very small number of travelers continue to test positive for COVID-19 post-arrival to Hawaiʻi. As of Nov. 9, there have been 18 confirmed positives out of 15,158 tests conducted for a positivity rate of .139% (total, since the program’s launch on Oct. 19).  


Considerable efforts during the past week have been directed to improve and maximize the overall project efficiency. This includes (but not limited to) increased capacity for incoming travelers to get a post-arrival NAAT test and maximized project data flow between collaborating partners. Additionally, the team is working with the Hawaiʻi Department of Education to invite its employees to participate in the secondary testing following travel. Special communications to employees will be sent by DOE. 

To participate in the study, individuals must have also participated in the Safe Travels Hawaiʻi pre-travel testing program, which requires travelers to receive a negative nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) from a trusted testing partner 72 hours prior to departure to Hawaiʻi in order to avoid the State of Hawaiʻi’s mandatory 14-day quarantine. The Safe Travels Testing Evaluation Program, or strategic surveillance study, collects and evaluates data from COVID-19 testing of travelers post-arrival to Hawaiʻi. The program is designed to estimate the frequency of COVID-19 among pre-tested returning residents and visitors and determine the effectiveness of the Safe Travels Hawaiʻi program. 

Dr. DeWolfe Miller, epidemiologist from the University of Hawaiʻi’s John A. Burns School of Medicine, is leading the study in coordination with Hawaiʻi Emergency Management Agency (HI-EMA), Governor’s Office, Lt. Gov. Josh Green and testing partners.
