Statewide cases up to 371

Twenty new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Hawaii as of noon Sunday, bringing the state’s total to 371 and Maui County’s to 43.

All of the new cases are adults, the state’s Joint Information Center said Sunday. Eleven are travel associated, two are community related and seven are pending further investigation.

There are now 281 cases in Honolulu County, 43 in Maui County, 22 in Hawaii County and 16 in Kauai County. Two residents have been diagnosed out of state and the residences of seven are unknown. There have been four deaths, including an Oahu man on Saturday morning.

The five new cases reported in Maui County include a second case on Molokai, which was announced by state and county leaders late Saturday night.

After the first case was confirmed earlier this week from an employee of the Friendly Market Center, Mayor Michael Victorino, Sen. Majority Leader J. Kalani English and Rep. Lynn DeCoite worked with the market’s owners to facilitate testing for all employees.

The second positive test came out of that round of testing, a news release said.

As a result, Friendly Market Center will remain closed until April 20 and employees will undergo self-quarantine.

Statewide, 13,536 tests have been performed by state and clinical labs as of noon Sunday.
