Electronic Lab Reporting Undercount Today

For a second day, a temporary interruption in electronic laboratory reporting (ELR) caused cases to be undercounted.

This report includes cases up until Monday at 11:59 p.m. Full data is posted on the State COVID-19 dashboard and on the DOH Disease Outbreak & Control Division website daily: hawaiicovid19.com/dashboard.
