Three more Honolulu firefighters assigned to the Hawaii Kai fire station have tested positive for COVID-19, according to an email from the firefighters union that was sent to members on Thursday. City officials announced the first COVID-19 case associated with the station on Wednesday. The Honolulu Fire Department said it is working with the city and state “to ensure procedures are followed and adequate measures are taken.” But on Thursday, the Hawaii Firefighters Local 1463 union sent an email to members saying three additional firefighters had tested positive and that all four individuals were in isolation. Other station personnel were undergoing a mandatory 14-day quarantine, the union said. Equipment at the station, including fire trucks, was sanitized, fire officials said.
