The County of Maui will continue to monitor and provide assistance to the state Department of Health, which confirmed today the first four cases of COVID-19 among residents on the island of Lanai.
“It was my hope and prayer that we would have no cases on Lanai, but we understand how quickly this virus can spread in our communities,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “We support the Department of Health’s work to monitor these cases, which are in isolation, and conduct contact tracing to help protect our Lanai residents.”
“I ask Lanai residents and visitors to follow all directions from our healthcare workers and health officials to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” Mayor Victorino said. “Healthy safeguards continue to be wearing face masks, watching physical distancing, avoiding crowds, frequently washing hands and sanitizing high-touch areas.”
