No new cases were reported on the Big Island, where a re-categorization dropped the total count since the pandemic began from 116 to 115 on Thursday. According to the state Department of Health, only one case on the Big Island is active. The state’s virus tracker, which maps active cases geographically on each island, can be viewed here.
