Drive-Through COVID-19 Testing on Wednesday, Aug. 19, at Keopuolani Park

Mayor Michael Victorino announced that drive-through COVID-19 testing will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 19, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Keopuolani Regional Park.

Keopuolani Regional Park will be closed Wednesday morning and open at 3:00 p.m., following the drive-through COVID-19 testing event.

“We know there are concerns in our community with recent cases and we want to mahalo Minit Medical for partnering with us to provide another drive-through testing,” Mayor Victorino said. “While we continue to hold these events when possible, we encourage anyone who is worried to call their doctor or visit a local medical care provider.
