It has been three years since the initial outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States. Since that time, we have made significant progress in curbing the spread of the virus and ensuring our nation is better prepared for any future pandemic. But, with the relaxation of public health restrictions, rise in new variants and lag in vaccine booster rates, COVID-19 continues to pose threat to our public health, our economy, our communities, families and ourselves. In Hawai’i, COVID-19 cases remain high and continue to place additional strain on our health care systems, which are already inundated with patients recovering from influenza, respiratory syncytial virus and other respiratory illnesses.

That is why we cannot take COVID-19 for granted, and why I continue working with the administration and my colleagues in Congress to ensure federal resources remain available to address the ongoing health and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. In doing so, my staff and I continue working to provide you the best and most current information and to assist you with your own needs.

This COVID-19 webpage provides you with the latest public health information on COVID-19, information on my actions to help our Hawai‘I, and key resources from my office and federal government agencies to help you and yours as we adjust to a “new normal” in the pandemic. The best overall source of if information and guidance on COVID-19, including how to protect yourself and your ‘ohana from COVID-19, where to obtain vaccines and testing, and what to do if you have contracted or been exposed to COVID-19, remains our Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Please do not hesitate to contact me or my office anytime online or by calling my Honolulu office at (808) 650-6688. We will continue to get through this together.
