Second HCCC Employee Positive, Statewide Testing Continues
A second Hawai‘i Community Correctional Center (HCCC) employee has reported a positive test result to the facility. The employee last worked April 8. Testing conducted this week at the facility by PSD health care staff, with the assistance of DOH and Premier Medical Group, resulted in 39 negative staff test results. No HCCC inmates have reported symptoms but as a precaution the facility enacted their pandemic protocol to quarantine the facility and suspend all inmate movement after an HCCC employee reported testing positive Monday.

COVID-19 testing is continuously being conducted statewide at all facilities. Currently the inmate population at all facilities is clear of active COVID-19 cases. The Maui Community Correctional Center reports three (3) negative inmate test results and the O‘ahu Community Correctional Center reports 23 negative inmate results.
