Nearly 400 COVID-19 tests were administered to Lanai residents on Saturday during a six-hour mass testing event aimed at curbing the spread of the virus.
Well over 3,000 tests have been administered on Lanai since the beginning of the outbreak. There were no positive cases reported Saturday on the island.
“I thank the Lanai residents who’re protecting themselves and their community by getting tested for this virus,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “We need to know where the virus has spread to conduct contact tracing and quarantine people who may have contracted the illness. I also want to thank the partnership of Straub Medical Center-Lanai Clinic, Lanai Community Health Center, Pulama Lana`i, the National Guard and police officers on Lanai for providing this public health service to our community.”
