The Hawai‘i State Department of Health Kaua‘i District Health Office reported four new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, April 1.
Three of today’s cases are residents whose source of exposure is considered travel-related as they are household contacts of the two cases announced yesterday. The fourth case is a female visitor whose source of infection is related to inter-island travel and who was diagnosed off-island. Close contacts are being identified, directed to quarantine, and offered testing.
Today’s cases bring the number of active cases to seven, with 230 cumulative cases. Kaua‘i’s cumulative case count includes 195 confirmed locally, two probable, and 33 positive cases diagnosed elsewhere, as they received their pre-travel test results after arriving on island.
