Investigation Into 2 COVID-19 Cases

An Investigation the state Department of Health made into the two active COVID-19 cases on Kaua‘i gives officials confidence neither was infectious during travel. DOH Kaua‘i District Health Office Officer Dr. Janet Berreman expanded further on Tuesday. The infectious period for COVID-19 starts about two days before symptoms do, and the disease is spreadable for about 10 days, Berreman said. “There are case-by-case variations, but this is the general timeframe.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that the “onset and duration of viral shedding and the period of infectiousness for COVID-19 are not yet known with certainty.”
