Drive through testing sites are being offered in Kahului in Central Maui on Thursday, April 9; and in the East Maui Community of Hāna on Friday, April 10, 2020.  The first two hours of the Kahului clinic are reserved for first responders and health care workers.  The news comes on the heels of a confirmed cluster of 15 workers with Maui Health that tested positive for COVID-19.

NOTE: Attending this screening is a medical visit and is allowed within the rules of quarantine (so the public can feel reassured its okay to attend).  The screening is FREE and not everyone that visits will proceed to testing–this is dependent on the clinician screening patient upon entering. If you proceed to testing, registration will ask for ID and insurance IF THEY HAVE insurance. This is because samples will be billed through insurance WITH NO COPAY to the patient. Insurance is NOT REQUIRED for participation.  No doctors requisition is needed.
