Kaua’i Mayor Derek Kawakami says the community pulled together and took precautions after cases were linked to two local restaurants on Saturday, May 1.

“Last month, Kaua‘i saw a rapid spike in cases unlike anything we experienced before. But our community pulled together to take precautions, get tested, and cooperate with the contact tracing and quarantine process. Through the joint efforts of our community members and our public health partners, we were able to contain the outbreak very quickly, and we are grateful for that.”
