The Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) is working with the Department of Health (DOH) to monitor confirmed cases of dengue fever in the state.
According to a statement from the HTA, the DOH and marketing contractors are working closely with the organization to share information about the dengue fever cases. To help educate people, Hawaii's DOH has posted information on its official website featuring tips and advice on how tourists and locals alike can protect themselves.
The DOH also started a public awareness campaign for dengue fever called "Fight the Bite."
HTA representatives are advising travelers to familiarize themselves with information on DOH's website before arriving in Hawaii. The organization is also asking stakeholders on Hawaii Island to share this information with their visitors and guests.
The HTA released an official statement about handling the dengue fever outbreak:
"We will continue to work with industry stakeholders and our global marketing contractors to ensure that visitors to Hawaii know that it is safe to travel to the Hawaiian Islands and what precautions should be taken if they are planning to visit areas where cases have been found."
