Mayor Michael Victorino announced that drive-through COVID-19 testing and a mask distribution will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 16, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Mitchell Pauole Community Center on Molokai.

The County of Maui will be sending about 2,000 masks to be distributed during the drive-through.

Minit Medical Urgent Care will administer diagnostic PCR testing and will call individuals with all results, which are expected to take one to three days.

“We had a good turnout for last week’s drive-through testing on Molokai, but with additional cases discovered on the island, it’s important that we hold another event to help identify any community spread,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “Mahalo to Minit Medical for partnering with us again, to send their team to assist the people of Molokai.”

Participants should pre-register for the drive-through testing on Minit Medical’s website at Participants can do same-day registration, but pre-registration saves time and avoids paperwork and personal interactions.

“We look forward to returning to Molokai and holding this testing event for the community,” said Justin Prouty, owner of Minit Medical. “We want to remind everyone, though, that you do not need to wait for a drive-through to get tested. We encourage you to call your doctor or local medical provider anytime to setup an appointment.”

Testing is available for individuals who are either symptomatic or asymptomatic. Most Insurances will cover costs associated with COVID-19 testing. If you do not have insurance, the testing will be covered by the Federal Government.

People who get tested are asked to bring:

  • Insurance card
  • Identification
  • Facial covering / mask

Criteria for testing:


  • Fever/chills
  • Body aches
  • Short of breath
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Cough
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea
  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Runny nose

  • Pre-operative, pre-procedure testing
  • Required for travel (costs might be incurred)
