Free Drive-Through COVID-19 Testing Opens in Wailuku, Part of State Expansion
The Hawaiʻi Department of Health also announced it is expanding its network of free COVID-19 community testing through a partnership with the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaiʻi Consortium and independent pharmacies across the state. The program is rolling out at locations on Hawaiʻi Island, Kauaʻi, Maui, Lānaʻi and Molokaʻi.
The Maui County sites are listed below:
“DOH is working to make free testing available all across the state, especially as demand remains high,” said Health Director Dr. Elizabeth Char. “This program immediately increases access to free testing for neighbor island residents. We continue to urge Hawaiʻi residents to use all the tools available to them to stop this surge and protect themselves and their families.”
“We are truly thankful to our community partners,” said Glen Hayashida, President & CEO of the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaiʻi. “The combination of having a comprehensive range of testing from the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaiʻi Consortium and easy access to vaccinations from the Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network is a major weapon in our battle against this pandemic as we fight to save lives and keep communities open and accessible.”
Pre-registration at PreventCOVIDHI.com is recommended. Testing sites offer PCR mid-turbinate testing. Results are expected to be provided the same day via email.
Many sites also offer COVID-19 vaccinations. The program is expected to expand to pharmacies on Oʻahu.
