Updated: Tuesday, August 17, 11:20 a.m. HST

We received notification yesterday that one of our part-time associates tested positive for COVID-19.

We will continue staff and visitor surveillance questionnaire as well as continue to monitor residents' vital signs, including any signs and symptoms for COVID-19.

We have tested 100% of associates within the department. All associates tested negative as of 7 p.m. on Aug. 16.

As our community positivity rate continues to climb (currently at 8.4 percent) -

  • 1. Unvaccinated staff are tested once a week.
  • 2. Enhanced cleaning using our electrostatic sprayer has been increased throughout the facility.
  • 3. Face shields are required in all patient care areas in addition to masking and hand hygiene.

Our current vaccination rate: 92 percent for staff and 81 percent for residents.

Fighting this pandemic is a team effort, and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding to help limit spread and exposure.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns by phone at 808-429-1634.
