Drive-thru COVID-19 testing to be made available in Waiʻanae
The City and County of Honolulu is pleased to announce that Premier Medical Group Hawaiʻi will conduct drive-thru COVID-19 testing this Thursday, April 9. Testing will be conducted in the Waiʻanae Harbor lot, 85-471 Farrington Highway.
Follow the signs posted on Farrington Highway where you will be directed to the initial screening site. The hours of testing will be from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. Those coming for testing should be experiencing upper respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath. Premier Medical Group Hawaiʻi’s Dr. Scott Miscovich will be leading the effort. All who attend will first be screened for symptoms and asked to provide personal information and contact numbers so results can be made known to them. Results of the testing will be used to identify COVID-19 “Hot Spots” to help in their containment. “We need to be more aggressive in testing,” said Mayor Kirk Caldwell. “The enemy is the COVID-19 virus. We know it’s out there, we now need to find out exactly where it is. The only way we do that is through more testing.” For more information on this testing, please call Premier Medical Group Hawaiʻi at (808) 304-8816 or (808) 367-6020.
