COVID-19 tests on Molokaʻi and in Hāna are negative
Senator J. Kalani English (Senate District 7 – Hāna, East and Upcountry Maui, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi and Kahoʻolawe), and Representative Lynn DeCoite (House District 13 – Molokaʻi, East Maui, Lānaʻi, Kahoʻolawe and Molokini) announced today that all results from a COVID-19 community testing earlier this month in Hāna and on Moloka‘i came back negative.
Mahalo nui to Mayor Mike Victorino, the County of Maui and Dr. Scott Miscovich for creating a team effort to ensure our communities are safe and healthy.
“We are so pleased that these initial test results are negative for Moloka’i and Hāna and have not found any more COVID-19 cases in these remote communities,” said Senator English. “We thanks Dr. Miscovich and his team for providing this testing.”
“It is important that we keep travel restrictions in place and keep the Hāna Highway closed to continue containing the spread of COVID-19,” said Representative DeCoite.
The testing took place on April 10 and April 17 in Hāna, and April 7 and April 16 on Moloka’i following the first confirmed cases in those communities.
