LIHU‘E — Six new cases of COVID-19 were reported Wednesday by the state Department of Health Kaua‘i District Health Office.
All six of the cases are Kaua‘i residents. Two cases are children whose family members had a history of travel — their source of infection is considered inter-island-travel-related. Two are adult residents who received positive test results after their return from the mainland. Their source of infection is also travel-related. The last two cases are adult residents whose sources of infection are considered community-acquired.
Officials are awaiting confirmatory test results for several additional cases.
Contacts are being identified, directed to quarantine and offered testing.
Wednesday’s cases bring the number of active cases to 34, with 270 cumulative cases.
Kaua‘i’s cumulative case count includes 233 confirmed locally, two probable, and 35 positive cases diagnosed elsewhere, as they received their pre-travel test results after arriving on island.
