COVID-19 Testing is now underway at the Lahaina Drive Through site along the Honoapiʻilani Highway in West Maui near Launiupoko Beach Park.

Much of the testing taking place across the county to date, including today’s drive through site is coordinated by Dr. Scott Miscovich and his team with Premier Medical Group.  Help today is provided by a volunteer team with Doctors On Call Maui.

Personal Protective Equipment and other supplies for today’s effort were donated by the Maui Marriott Vacation Club.

The first hour of testing between 9 and 10 a.m. was dedicated to first responders and healthcare workers near Launiupoko Beach Park.  Testing for the general public runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“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.”
