When you need to be alonePosted on Sep 29, 2020 in Capitol Connection
Need a place to quarantine or isolate because of COVID-19? You can call the Health Department’s Hawai‘i CARES line at 832-3100 or 1-800-753-6879 for placement or in-home services. “No one in need is turned away,” said DOH deputy director Edward Mersereau on a recent media tour of the Pearl Hotel Waikiki. The hotel is one of four housing people referred through the CARES program.
The program helps those living in crowded, multigenerational households; first responders; individuals without shelter; and others unable to safely quarantine or isolate while awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test or who have tested positive for the virus.
