**The state Department of Health says “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.”

There are nine COVID-19 clusters identified in Maui County, according to an updated report issued on Thursday, Feb. 4. This included: one cluster at a correctional facility, one cluster at a food supplier, three at restaurants, one in construction/industrial, one in travel/lodging/tourism, and two in apartment complexes.

To date, there have been 418 COVID-19 related deaths in Hawaiʻi including: 335 on Oʻahu, 26 in Maui County, 53 on Hawaiʻi Island, one on Kauaʻi and three deaths in residents diagnosed while out-of-state including one of an elderly Kaua‘i resident who died out of state, in Arizona, and another involving a male between the ages of 60-69 years old with underlying medical conditions who had been incarcerated out of state and died at a hospital.

In Maui County, cases with onset in the last 14 days have been in all areas of Maui except the East Maui town of Hāna and the island of Molokaʻi according to DOH mapping. 

As of Nov. 21, Lāna‘i’s case load lightened to 0 cases reported within the last 14 days, out of a total 106 reported over the course of the pandemic. On Lānaʻi, 105 of the 106 total infections are associated with the recent outbreak, first reported on Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2020. Large social gatherings and household transmission have been identified as the main drivers of this outbreak. A safer-at-home order concluded on Nov. 30, 2020, and the island returned to an act-with-care status as of Dec. 1, 2020. Lānaʻi had new cases reported on Jan. 28, and Feb. 5 and 6, 2021.

The East Maui town of Hāna was added back to the active map on Nov. 19, dropped off the active list on Dec. 3, and added back to the active map on Jan. 3, and removed on Jan. 17. Over the course of the pandemic the total number of cases is listed as ranging from (1-10). 

The state Department of Health counts visitors that are diagnosed here – they don’t count visitors that were diagnosed outside of Hawaiʻi.  For residents, the DOH counts both: those that are diagnosed outside of Hawaiʻi are counted under the category, “Residents diagnosed outside of Hawaiʻi.”

The volunteer post-arrival testing is for both returning residents and visitors. For this testing, the county asks people to test about 72 hours after arrival as a secondary or “sandwich” test to their pre-arrival testing. 

As of Feb. 7, 2021, this program has deployed 21,283 tests with 464 testing positive for COVID-19 (including Harbor Lights testing). The voluntary testing positivity rate is 2.18 percent.
