Hawai‘i COVID-19 Joint Information Center:

For over a year, the state’s Joint Information Center (JIC) has provided a daily summary of the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic to media and members of the public.

At this point, all the information reported in the Daily News Digest (DND) can be viewed on a daily basis via the web links regularly included, and the JIC has produced this final DND today. (Please save this DND or print pages 5-6 for easy, future reference)

For the past 14 months it has been a privilege to provide information on the COVID-19 pandemic in Hawai’i to state leaders and employees, to the news media, and to citizens. The JIC has been staffed by volunteer communications professionals from a variety of state departments, and we owe a debt of gratitude to all these folks as they handled crisis information needs, as well as their regular jobs within their respective agencies.

We appreciate the notes of thanks we’ve received and trust the information provided has helped Hawaiʻi to soon move beyond this pandemic. We wish you, our faithful readers, health and happiness and leave you with this constant reminder (for a while longer at least) to mask-up, physically distance, stay at home when you’re sick, and wash your hands. Mahalo for your support.
