Staff member of Congressman Kahele tests positive for COVID-19
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - As the nation sees a resurgence in COVID cases, the office of Hawaii Congressman Kai Kahele confirmed that one of their staff members has tested positive for the virus.
The staff member was fully vaccinated.
Kahele’s office said they are following guidelines set by both the CDC and the Office of the Attending Physician.
His office did not specify if Kahele recently had contact with this person and said they will not release any other details.
