Hawai‘i’s COVID-19 death toll remains unchanged at 169, with no new deaths reported since yesterday.

Hawai‘i County is reporting a total 32 COVID-related deaths on the island.  State officials say reporting on these deaths was delayed due to pending medical reports required for verification and classification of deaths as COVID-19.

The cumulative total of cases in Maui County is 397 cases over the course of the pandemic.  To date, there have been at least 19 cases on the island Molokaʻi.

QUARANTINE UPDATES:

Gov. Ige Provides Update on October 15 Pre-Travel Testing Program

Governor David Ige provided an update on the State’s Pre-Travel testing program saying it is set to launch on Oct. 15 with an expanded list of testing partners.  Under the program, travelers arriving in Hawaii must take a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test from a CLIA certified lab within 72 hours from the final leg of departure and produce a negative result in order to avoid the state’s 14-day mandatory quarantine. Children under the age of five are exempt from the test.

This expanded list of partners includes Hawaiian, Southwest and United airlines; CVS Health and Walgreens; Kaiser Permanente and Quest Diagnostics; AFC and CityHealth Urgent Care; as well as Carbon Health, Vault Health and Color.

Separate from the travel testing, Gov. Ige also announced that the state will receive 420,000 Abbot BINAXNOW rapid antigen tests from the federal government by the end of the year. These 15-minute tests will be used first to protect the health of residents, specifically at long term care centers and as schools are reopened.

In addition to the pre-test program, Lieutenant Governor Josh Green announced plans to start a pilot post-arrival surveillance testing program that he hopes to have off the ground by Oct. 19.  The program seeks voluntary compliance and hopes to test 10% of arriving passengers.

Maui Moving Forward with Pre-Travel Testing Program

Mayor Michael Victorino announced on Oct. 7 that he is moving forward with the state’s pre-travel testing program (which is set to start on Oct. 15), but is urging trans-Pacific travelers to voluntarily take a second test after they arrive in Maui County.  His request for mandatory approval of a post-arrival secondary test was denied by the Governor. Mayor Victorino said he looks forward to learning more from the state on the development of its contact tracing app and surveillance testing plan for travelers.

Also on Oct. 7, Mayor Victorino put in a request to the Governor to have the pre-travel testing option extended to interisland travelers who currently have no option to avoid the 14-day quarantine between counties; AND he is requesting approval to waive the quarantine and refrain from imposing a pre travel test requirement for residents of Maui County, traveling solely between Maui, Molokaʻi and Lānaʻi.

Honolulu Mayor Announces Limited Reopening on O‘ahu Starting Sept. 24:

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s latest Emergency Order for O‘ahu went into effect on Thursday, Sept. 24.  This limited reopening phase replaces the Stay-at-Home/Work-from-Home Order which expired on Sept. 24.

Government leaders say the order is aimed at reducing virus spread and seeks to put O‘ahu on the path to economic recovery. The criteria used for loosening restrictions is an average seven-day daily coronavirus case count of more than 100 cases, and a seven-day daily positivity rate on O‘ahu of more than 5 percent.

The framework includes a mechanism for advancing or retreating to another tier indicated by the metrics. The community cannot advance to the next, less-restrictive tier for at least four consecutive weeks and can only move forward one tier at a time. Conversely the city can skip tiers in moving backwards.

O‘ahu could move to Tier 2 of a four-tiered reopening strategy for the island on Thursday, Oct. 22, if the average case count and positivity rate continue to meet levels outlined by the Mayor.
