Mayor Michael Victorino is urging residents to participate in drive-through COVID-19 testing on Wednesday, Dec. 16, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Pauwela Cannery in Haiku.
This and other free testing events are an opportunity for returning residents or visitors to take a voluntary secondary test after their arrival on Maui to confirm they do not have COVID-19.
“These free testing programs make it possible for early detection of COVID-19 before it spreads throughout our community,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “Mahalo to Minit Medical Urgent Care for its partnership with the County of Maui in this testing program.”
All participants for the Haiku testing event must pre-register by visiting www.minitmed.com/pre-register-maui-covid-19. Participants are asked to come to the test site at their designated time.
Minit Med will open its Kahului, Kihei and Lahaina offices from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 23 to provide an opportunity for testing before Christmas.
Residents do not need to have insurance or meet any criteria to get tested for free. Participants must wear a face mask, and they are urged to come at their scheduled time. Results will be reported on the same day as testing. Minit Medical is administering the program sponsored by the County of Maui.
If you have any problem pre-registering, please call (808) 667-6161 ext: 7, for help and more information.
NOTE: The free testing cannot be used for the State’s Pre-Travel Testing Program.
