Attention Healthcare Providers:
An outbreak of a 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China has been developing since December 2019. This outbreak now includes over 300 confirmed infections and several deaths in China with confirmed cases also in Thailand, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and the United States (one case in Washington State). While human-to-human transmission appears limited and the severity of illness appears less than SARS, the situation continues to evolve, and the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH) is monitoring closely. There are no direct flights from China to Hawaii; however, residents/visitors from China may still enter our state from other U.S. or international ports of entry.
