There were two additional deaths reported, both on Oahu. There have been 1,336 new cases in the past two weeks, including a cluster of 50 reported Saturday at the Waiawa Correctional Facility. The statewide positivity rate is down to 2%.
The COVID-19 case reports are based on test results from laboratories statewide. The numbers include lab results from both residents and tourists. Since March, 94% of cases diagnosed in the islands have been among residents and 7% have required hospitalization.
Civil Beat calculates at least 250 people have died from the disease in Hawaii including 17 deaths on Hawaii island that have not been recorded yet by the Department of Health due to medical verification lags.
The statewide official death toll is 233. County officials are usually the first to announce local cases and fatalities.

Daily Case Count
* The current case numbers and test positivity rate may not correlate with the metrics set for a specific tier as the county must spend at least four consecutive weeks in a tier and meet the metrics for the next tier before advancing, according to the reopening plan. More information of the City and County of Honolulu’s reopening strategy as well as details of the restrictions of Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3 and Tier 4 can be found at oneoahu.org
