Daily COVID Case Counts From District Health Office End; No New Cases Reported Monday
The state Department of Health Kaua‘i District Health Office announced no new cases of COVID-19 on Monday, March 14.
“Today is the last day that the county and KDHO will issue daily COVID-19 case counts. Kaua‘i residents can find county data on the DOH website, where it is updated weekly on Wednesday,” said Kaua‘i District Health Officer Dr. Janet Berreman in a press release. “KDHO staff are working to clear a backlog of cases reported during the Omicron surge which require manual data entry. These cases have already been reported locally, but will be added to the DOH data tables in the weekly reports between now and the end of the month. This backlog developed due to the unprecedented case counts experienced on Kaua‘i during the Omicron surge, and is not expected to recur.”
Monday’s active cases are 27, with two hospitalized, and 12,030 cumulative cases. Kaua‘i’s cumulative case count includes 11,949 confirmed locally, eight probable and 73 positive cases diagnosed elsewhere.
The District Health Office is also monitoring one cluster in a food supplier setting, with 21 total cases to date. All affected individuals have been offered testing and were directed to isolate.
