The third is this afternoon in Puna at Kea‘au High School from 1 to 5 p.m.

The Department of Health is monitoring 143 active cases in Hawai‘i County; there are 12 new cases reported today with four persons hospitalized. As coronavirus continues to be a threat to the community, county officials say, it’s important that residents and visitors continue to follow the preventive policies of face coverings, distancing, and limiting gathering sizes to no more than 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors to stop the spread.

For questions regarding COVID-19 vaccine availability, call the DOH at 808-300-1120. Visit Hawai‘i County Civil Defense Agency here for a list of all clinics and pharmacies providing vaccinations.
