HONOLULU (KHON2) — Hawaiian Airlines is offering waivers for passengers who have flights to Pago Pago.
This is in light of a measles outbreak in American Samoa.
The government of American Samoa declared an outbreak of the disease.
Public schools there will be closed Monday, December 8, and there’s now a ban on gatherings in parks.
Right now the U.S. territory has nine cases.
In the neighboring nation of Samoa, more than 60 people have died from measles — the majority are children. More than 4,000 people have been infected since the outbreak there started in mid-October 2019.
