Posted November 18, 2020, 4:37 PM HST

The Kaua‘i District Health Office reported one new case of COVID-19 on Wednesday.

The case is a male resident who received a negative pre-travel test result as part of the state’s Safe Travels program, but took a voluntary post-travel test which was positive.

All active cases are in isolation and one person is hospitalized.

Kaua‘i now has 13 active, on-island cases and a cumulative total of 95. Kaua‘i’s cumulative total includes 85 confirmed on-island cases, one probable case, and nine are confirmed positive cases with tests performed out-of-state/off-island but reported after arrival/return to Kaua‘i.

The County is currently in Tier 4, the lowest tier on Kauai’s Business and Recreational Guidelines for COVID-19 Tier Tracker. If cases remain above a weekly average of two per day for two weeks, or test positivity remains above a weekly average of 1% for two weeks, the County will move to Tier 3, prompting additional restrictions.
