The Hawai‘i Department of Health reported 47 new cases of COVID-19 Tuesday, bringing the statewide total to 1,757.

No new cases were reported on the Big Island, where DOH actually subtracted one case from the total Tuesday due to a reporting error. There are currently two active cases in Hawai‘ County, according to DOH numbers. The state’s virus tracker, which maps active cases geographically across all islands, can be accessed here.
