In this update HTA emphasizes that there is no need for travelers to the Big Island to change or alter their plans. 

They also specify the specific area that is being affected by lava in this passage:

"None of the Hawaiian Islands are affected by Kilauea volcano except a remote area on the island of Hawaii's east side and the Kilauea Summit. Out of the island’s 4,028 square miles, only a remote area of less than 10 square miles is affected, Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens Subdivisions in Puna. As a precautionary measure, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has been closed indefinitely as a precaution should a steam explosion occur in the crater."
