The Kaua‘i District Health Office reports two new positive cases of COVID-19 on Sunday.

Both individuals were close contacts identified through contact tracing efforts related to other active cases and were already under quarantine. One individual is a male visitor. The other individual is a female resident. Department of Health contact tracing efforts are ongoing, but officials are not expecting many additional contacts to be identified since the individuals were already under health-directed quarantine.

Kaua‘i’s current status as of Sunday morning is six active cases. Kaua‘i’s cumulative case count is 66 and one probable case.

Post-travel testing is available to both residents and visitors who traveled to Kaua‘i from the mainland and participated in the state’s Safe Travel Program. Testing is available no sooner than 72 hours after arrival and up to 14 days, but the preferable time is five to seven days after arrival for best results. Many travelers are not on island that long and in those cases, a test three days after arrival is encouraged.
