HDOH sent this information yesterday:
As the new coronavirus has been headlining the news recently, we’d like to remind everyone that there are NO cases in Hawaii at this time. Though the immediate health risk in Hawaii is low, we recognize the seriousness of the situation and are working diligently with the county and federal officials around the clock. We anticipate that at some point there may be a case identified in Hawaii and the department is continually updating information as the situation evolves and federal directives change. We urge everyone to learn about the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) by staying informed with credible sources, such as the Department of Health’s website.
