The Hawai‘i Department of Health reported 29 newly confirmed cases of coronavirus Monday, bringing the state total to 204.

Total hospitalizations statewide remain at 12, DOH said, and there were no coronavirus-related deaths in Hawai‘i as of noon Monday.

  • Maui: 25 (5)
  • Hawai‘i Island: 15 (3)
  • Kaua‘i: 12 (0)

O‘ahu was hit hardest with 16 new cases of COVID-19 in the last day, while Kaua‘i went 24 hours without a positive test result.

Hawai‘i County Civil Defense on Monday morning cited 16 cases on the Big Island, an increase of four since Sunday. The numbers given by DOH indicate only three new cases, but the flow of information allows for minor discrepancies as totals are in a state of constant flux.
