Drive-through COVID-19 Testing Set for Tuesday, Sept. 8 on Moloka’i

Drive-through COVID-19 testing will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 8, at the Mitchell Pauʻole Community Center on Molokaʻi. Testing is available for symptomatic or asymptomatic individuals and are encouraged to pre-register to save time and minimize personal interactions.

“I strongly encourage Molokaʻi residents to consider getting tested during this drive-through testing event,” said Maui Mayor Michael Victorino. “By testing our community widely and accurately, we can limit the spread of this virus. Again, we want to mahalo Minit Medical for taking their team to Molokaʻi and 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.
