Drive-through COVID-19 testing will be held on Thursday, Feb. 4, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Shops at Wailea, and on Friday, Feb. 5, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Haiku Community Center parking lot.
“Ours is the only county to offer free COVID-19 testing for residents and visitors,” said Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino. “Early detection followed by isolation and contact tracing helps to contain spread. Our partnership with Minit Medical Urgent Care has made testing simple, quick and easy for the 18,604 people who’ve been tested so far.”
All participants in the free testing events must pre-register by visiting www.minitmed.com. Participants in the Wailea event should click on Minit Med’s “Voluntary Transpacific Traveler 2nd Test Program” tab, and those in the Haiku event should click on the “Free Maui County Residents Drive Through Testing” tab.
For the event in Wailea, motorists are asked to enter from the Shops at Wailea’s South (Makena side) parking lot entrance off of Wailea Alanui Drive and exit at the North gate.
Participants 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.
