COVID-19 drive-through testing in Kona on Saturday, May 30


Premier Medical Group with the support of The County of Hawai’i, Hope Services and the Hawaii National Guard, will offer a drive-through screening and testing clinic for COVID-19 at Kamakoa Nui Park in Waikoloa on Saturday, May 30, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Entrance is from Kamakoa Drive, at the end of Paniolo Avenue.


This free clinic is open to the public; however, individuals must first undergo a screening to determine if they meet the criteria to be tested. Clinic physicians on site will make the determination regarding testing. The screening criteria will be based on guidance of the CDC and the State’s COVID-19 Response Task Force.


People who visit the screening clinic will be asked to show photo ID. Additionally, people are requested to bring their own pen, and any health insurance cards they have, although insurance is not required.


Antibody Testing

Antibody testing will also be available at the Waikoloa testing clinic. Antibody testing can determine if you have previously had COVID-19.


Antibody testing will be offered only to those previously identified as having had the Coronavirus, or those with high risk exposures, including healthcare workers, first responders, and family members or those with close contact to known positives. A simple blood draw detects the presence of SARS-Cov2 IgG antibodies in your system.


Note: there is a $43 out-of-pocket cost to people whose medical insurance plans do not cover the antibody test. Call your insurance provider to find out if you’re covered.


For further information, please call Premier Medical Group at 808-304-9745 or Hawaii County Civil Defense at 935-0031.
