Maui County will continue supporting free drive-through testing for COVID-19 at the Mauliola Pharmacy from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and Sunday, Dec. 31 and Jan. 2. No appointment or pre-registration is needed.
“Our community’s high demand for COVID-19 tests stems from the impact the Omicron variant is having on our residents,” Mayor Victorino said. “Today, the Department of Health reported 356 new COVID-19 cases for Maui County, the most ever, and something we expected but hoped we’d never see. Test kit supplies ran out today at Mauliola Pharmacy, and we have taken steps to provide more test kits for testing at Mauliola on Friday and Sunday.”
The pharmacy is located at the Cameron Center at 95 Mahalani St. in Wailuku.
“With high demand for test kits, first priority should go to residents who are feeling flu-like symptoms or traveled recently,” Mayor Victorino said. “If you were exposed to someone who tested positive for the virus, you should stay away from others and wait three days to allow enough incubation time for a test to detect the virus.”
Testing is important because it quickly identifies individuals who have been infected. They can isolate themselves, protect their loved ones and limit community spread.
Free in-person testing is also available through a partnership between the County of Maui and Minit Medical Urgent Care. To pre-register, go to minitmed.com/pre-register-maui-covid-19. Test sites and days are:

Please remember: If you make an appointment for COVID-19 testing, please show up at the scheduled time. Failing to show up means someone else is denied a slot for testing.
“Please kokua, and practice aloha as we welcome a New Year in Maui County,” Mayor Victorino said.
