Drive-thru COVID-19 testing to be made available in Waipiʻo this weekend
The City and County of Honolulu is pleased to announce that Premier Medical Group Hawaiʻi will conduct drive-thru COVID-19 testing this weekend. Testing will be conducted on Saturday only, in the parking lot of Waipiʻo Peninsula Soccer Complex. Those coming for testing should be experiencing upper respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath.
On Saturday, April 11, the testing site will be at Waipiʻo Peninsula Soccer Complex, 93-061 Waipiʻo Point Access Road, Waipahu, off Farrington Highway. Follow the signs posted on Waipiʻo Point Access Road to the Soccer Complex where you will be directed to the initial screening site. The hours of testing will be from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. Premier Medical Group Hawaiʻi’s Dr. Scott Miscovich will again 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. “I think mass testing will make a tremendous difference in flattening the curve,” said Mayor Kirk Caldwell. “Part of it is to find out if we have clusters. And the reason I want to know this is because I want to tell the public where these clusters are so individuals can be more cautious in their communities.” For more information on this testing, please call Premier Medical Group Hawaiʻi at (808) 304-8816 or (808) 367-6020.
