SEN. BRIAN SCHATZ GAVE THE FOLLOWING REACTION TO INVASION OF UKRAINE: "Russia’s unprovoked attack against Ukraine’s national sovereignty and independence is the greatest breach of peace in Europe since World War II and a threat to democracies around the world. It cannot stand.President Biden has taken tough and appropriate actions, imposing crushing economic sanctions on Russian financial institutions and other actors, and limiting Russia’s participation in the world’s economy. Ukraine and its people have the full support of the United States and our NATO Allies."

A DECREASE IN COVID COUNTS MEANS FEWER TESTING EVENTS sponsored by Hawaiʻi
County. The county announced today it will scale back County-sponsored COVID-19 testing the week of
Feb. 27 due to continued decreases in case counts and site users.
The changes will be in effect through March 31. Additional changes to the testing schedule after March 31 have yet to be determined. In the meantime, weekly testing will remain available islandwide. Mayor Mitch Roth said, “Throughout the pandemic, we have used hard data to make tough decisions, and it has worked to the benefit of our community thus far. At this point, the data is showing that we can begin scaling back and refocusing our efforts on other pertinent issues, such as economic resurgence. This does not mean that we should stop getting tested or vaccinated to help to keep ourselves and those around us safe; it just means that for now, we can refocus County resources on other matters. Should the data tell
us otherwise down the road, we will adjust and respond accordingly.”
The weekly testing site in Kaʻū will be Thursdays at Na'alehu Community Center from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. In Hilo, testing will be Tuesdays and Thursdays at Afook Chinen Civic from 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. In Pahoa, testing will be Fridays at Pahoa Community Center from 2 p.m.-5 p.m.
In Kona, testing will be Wednesdays at Old Kona Airport Pavilion from 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. and Fridays at Old Kona Airport Pavilion from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. In South Kona testing will be on Wednesdays at Yano Hall from 7 a.m - 8 a.m.
For testing conducted by private entities, the County encourages residents to visit our webpage at www.hawaiicounty.gov/testing and check the section labeled, ‘Additional COVID-19 Testing Locations’. We would also like to thank the community for their continued efforts in keeping our island safe and healthy.
