Five cases of COVID-19 were diagnosed on Kauai Saturday. Four of those five cases have been recategorized as cases that have been diagnosed out-of-state.

These cases were tested on the mainland and received their positive test results after arrival on island, while in travel quarantine. The Hawai‘i State Department of Health Kaua‘i District Health Office reported no new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, Jan. 3.

The current number of on-island active cases remains at 13, with 176 cumulative cases. Kaua‘i’s cumulative case count now includes 150 confirmed locally, one probable, and 25 positive cases diagnosed elsewhere, as they received their pre-travel test results after arriving on island.
