The Healthcare Association of Hawaii (HAH) and Hawaii Healthcare Emergency Management (HHEM) are working closely with the Hawaii Department of Health (DOH), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and other partners on getting accurate information to our members about the novel coronavirus, (COVID-19), and to keep the public informed about the readiness of our hospitals and healthcare providers should it emerge here.

Health officials do expect for COVID-19 to surface in Hawaii at some point, so please continue with your preparations and be ready.

The DOH has created an updated flyer and an FAQ on coronavirus released today that you can share with patients, residents, families, visitors, and employees.

Here is the link to the main DOH page on coronavirus.

Here are links to the DOH clinicians page and the Patient Under Investigation (PUI) form.
