“I think this expanded testing in multiple communities across the island will make a tremendous difference in helping to determine the reach of this virus and ultimately flattening the curve,” said Mayor Kirk Caldwell. “Finding potential clusters is important so we can inform the public where these clusters are so individuals can be more cautious in their communities. Also, this expanded testing will help with decisions on how to eventually modify the Stay-at-Home Order so that Oʻahu’s residents can begin returning to a more open way of going about our lives again.”
