Drive-through testing for COVID-19 will take place in West Maui on Wednesday, April 15, along Honoapiʻilani Highway, beginning near Launiupoko Beach Park.

Testing will be open to first responders and healthcare workers ONLY from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.  They are asked to access the testing site using Kai Hele Kū Street.

Testing for the general public will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will have a separate access point to the drive-through.

“We want to mahalo Dr. Miscovich and his team again, for providing these test kits for the West Maui community,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “Providing testing in West Maui to first responders, healthcare workers and the general public is hugely valuable in our fight against COVID-19.”

Testing will be provided at no-cost through a partnership with Dr. Scott Miscovich of Premier Medical Group and the County of Maui.
