Drive-Thru COVID-19 Testing To Be Made Available In Waipio (4/4/2020) And Kakaako (4/5/2020)
Drive-thru COVID-19 testing to be made available in Waipiʻo and Kakaʻako
HONOLULU -- The City and County of Honolulu is pleased to announce that Premier Medical Group Hawaiʻi will again conduct drive-thru COVID-19 testing this weekend. Testing sites will be open in the parking lot of Waipiʻo Peninsula Soccer Complex and Kakaʻako Waterfront Park to check patients for COVID-19. Those eligible for testing should be experiencing upper respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath. If you are not experiencing these symptoms, Premier Medical Group Hawaiʻi asks that you not come so that those experiencing symptoms can be seen expeditiously.
On Saturday, April 4, 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. Testing on Sunday, April 5 will occur at Kakaʻako Waterfront Park near Ala Moana Boulevard, with initial screening beginning at the corner of Ilalo and Cooke Streets. Drivers should access the screening station via Ilalo Street at the corner of Ala Moana Boulevard and Ward Avenue. The hours of testing will be from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. at both locations.
Premier Medical Group Hawaiʻi's Dr. Scott Miscovich will again be leading the effort at both of these locations. All who attend each location 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.
"The City has three main focuses in this fight against the coronavirus, and testing is number one," said Mayor Caldwell. "The other two are quarantining and social distancing. I completely believe it is through testing, a pragmatic, active and targeted approach, that we can help flatten the curve. We are fighting a war against this virus and will be better prepared when we know where the enemy is."
For more information on this testing, please call Premier Medical Group Hawaiʻi at (808) 304-8816 or (808) 367-6020.
