Drive-through COVID-19 testing will be available in Upcountry Maui on Friday, Feb. 12, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Mayor Hannibal Tavares Community Center in Pukalani. Residents need not meet any criteria for the free test, but must pre-register at www.minitmed.com/pre-register-maui-covid-19.
“We’re continuing to ask people not to gather, especially for Sunday’s Super Bowl game,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “Free testing, along with not getting together, is another important way to protect our community. Mahalo to Minit Medical Urgent Care for working with Maui County to provide COVID testing that is a quick and simple way to put your mind at ease and protect your family and friends.”
Participants must wear a face mask, and are urged to arrive at their scheduled time. Results will be reported on the same day as testing.
Maui County is the state’s only county that offers free testing for residents, and has been since Oct. 16. As of Feb. 4, 2021, this program has deployed 20,761 tests with 452 testing positive for COVID-19. The positivity rate for the voluntary program is 2.18 percent.
If you have any problem pre-registering, please call (808) 667-6161 ext: 7, for help and more information.
NOTE: Maui County’s free testing cannot be used for the State’s Pre-Travel Testing Program.
