Representative Lynn DeCoite

Senator Lynn DeCoite is urging residents of Molokaʻi to take proper precautions against COVID-19 amid increased case counts on the island.

As of today, Dec. 28, 2021, there are 25 new cases reported on Molokaʻi in the daily count, and 67 “active” cases in the past 14 days. 

“Please continue to social distance, avoid large gatherings, wash your hands, and wear a mask when with people outside of your immediate household. If you are not yet vaccinated or boosted, please do so as soon as possible,” Sen. DeCoite said in a statement.

DeCoite represents District 7 which includes Hāna, East and Upcountry Maui, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Kahoʻolawe and Molokini. In an effort to facilitate testing, she provided a list COVID-19 testing sites, including: Lanikeha Community Center, Molokaʻi Community Health Center, Molokaʻi General Hospital, and Molokaʻi Drugs.

Nā Puʻuwai – Molokaʻi, Molokaʻi Community Health Center, and Molokaʻi General Hospital also offer vaccination appointments. 


“I ask my constituents across District 7 to please continue to be vigilant as we move into the New Year… If you are feeling sick or think you’ve been exposed, please get tested. It is on all of us to stop the spread and protect our communities,” said Sen. DeCoite.

In the past week, Senator DeCoite partnered with the National Kidney Foundation Hawaiʻi to provide more than 700 testing kits for Molokaʻi residents, including 300 test kits that were flown in over the holiday weekend.
