Drive-Through COVID-19 Testing at Keōpūolani Park on Thursday, Sept. 3
Drive-through COVID-19 testing will be held on Thursday, Sept. 3, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Keōpūolani Regional Park in Central Maui.
“I strongly encourage anyone who wants or thinks they should get tested, to come to this drive-through testing,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “As our health officials have said, it’s very important that we keep testing our community widely and accurately in order to limit the spread of this virus. We want to mahalo Minit Medical again, for their hard work and partnership to administer these drive-through events for Maui County.”
Diagnostic PCR testing will be available. Minit Medical will call individuals with all results, which are expected to take one to three days.
Participants should pre-register for the drive-through testing on Minit Medical’s website at www.minitmed.com. Participants can do same-day registration, but pre-registration saves time and avoids paperwork.
People who get tested are asked to bring:
- Insurance card
