Hawaii Reports No New COVID-19 Cases for First Time

On May 8th, Hawaii officials are reporting no new confirmed cases of COVID-19 for the first time in two months. Hawaii is currently tracking 63 active cases, while 566 total patients are considered recovered. 80 cases state-wide have required hospitalization.

Hawaii remains one of the least affected states when it comes to infections, largely in part to officials' quick response in creating quarantine rules for visitors to the island and stay-at-home implementations.

The state looks to start re-opening more businesses starting May 15th, including shopping malls.  Shoppers will still have to wear masks and obey social distancing rules.
