Hawaii Island Adult Care extends closure

Hawaii Island Adult Care Center announced Friday it will remain temporarily closed starting Monday and is scheduled to reopen on Oct. 5.

The center said in a statement the closure is in light of a recent spike in positive COVID-19 cases and deaths in Hilo.

HIAC Executive Director Marcie Saquing said there has not been any positive COVID-19 cases at the center, but the decision was made for the safety of its clients, who are a high-risk population, their families and caregivers, and the center’s staff and families.

For more information, call Saquing at 961-3747, ext. 107.
