Oahu’s ABC News affiliate reports:
The Hawai’i State Department of Health has traced 44 cases of COVID-19 on O’ahu to a single person. The state says 24 cases associated with a training program at Hawaiian Airlines are also linked to 20 cases at two Oahu gyms. The state says a person infected during Hawaiian Airlines meetings worked out at both gyms.
“I don’t think anyone would purposefully expose anyone else to COVID-19, often individuals are asymptomatic and don’t know that they’re infected. This is a classic situation in which I think emphasizes treating everyone around you as though they were infected,” Dr. Bruce Anderson, Director of the Department of Health, said.
Both gyms are now closed.
