1 HCCC Employee Tests Positive, MCCC Clear of COVID-19 Cases

COVID-19 testing is continuously being conducted statewide at all facilities. One (1) Hawaii Community Correctional Center (HCCC) employee reported a positive test result to the facility. The employee last worked April 7. No HCCC inmates have reported symptoms but as a precaution the facility has enacted their pandemic protocol to quarantine the facility and suspend all inmate movement. Facility health care staff and the Department of Health have initiated contact tracing and testing with the assistance of Premier Medical Group. The facility sanitized the spaces where the employee worked.

The Maui Community Correctional Center reports the remaining two (2) inmates with active positive cases have recovered. The facility is completely clear of all active COVID-19 cases.
