Department of Land and Natural Resources: 

All Forest Trails Now Closed On O‘ahu Due To Covid-19 Concerns 

With 12 straight days of triple-digit new positive COVID-19 cases in Hawai‘i and the majority of them on O‘ahu, the DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW) is closing all State forest land trails effective immediately. This includes all trails in the Na Ala Hele Trails and Access Program. 

 

The request to add trails to the list of already closed county and state parks and beaches was made by the City and County of Honolulu. DLNR Chair Suzanne Case said, “While we know how disappointing this is to many people, we all must accept these temporary inconveniences until the coronavirus surge is no longer an issue, for the safety and health of everyone in Hawai‘i.” 

 

Department of Public Safety:  

PSD COVID-19 Update  

Two more O‘ahu Community Correctional Center (OCCC) adult corrections officers (ACOs) and three OCCC inmates tested positive for COVID-19. The latest tests were announced Sunday. It brings the total number of ACOs at OCCC with positive test results to three and inmates to six. As with the other cases, contact tracing is pending with DOH.       

      

The facilities have longstanding outbreak management plans in place to quickly identify, isolate and treat communicable diseases. As part of the implementation of PSD’S COVID-19 pandemic plan for correctional facilities and with the concurrence of the Judiciary, all transports to court from all O‘ahu facilities are suspended for tomorrow. PSD will be in constant contact with the Judiciary going forward to assure the safety of all staff and inmates involved.   

     

PSD will continue to closely monitor the spread of COVID-19 and make additional operational and preventative decisions as the situation evolves. For more information on PSD’s planning and response to COVID-19, inmate testing data, and information detailing the efforts made to safeguard the inmates, staff and public, visit:
