Drive-through COVID-19 testing will be held on Friday, Dec. 11, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Shops at Wailea.
This is an opportunity for free testing for South Maui residents and for visitors to take a voluntary secondary test after their arrival on Maui to confirm they do not have COVID-19.
“This is part of visiting with aloha,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “Travelers arrive healthy, stay healthy and leave healthy. That way, they help keep Maui County healthy.”
Motorists are asked to enter from the Shops at Wailea’s South (Makena side) parking lot entrance off of Wailea Alanui Drive and exit at the North gate.
As a reminder, testing also is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 9, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Mayor Hannibal Tavares Community Center in Pukalani.
“I urge our residents and visitors to take advantage of these free testing programs,” Mayor Victorino said. “Early detection is an important way to protect our community from the spread of COVID-19. Mahalo to the Shops at Wailea for offering their parking lot as a test site.”
All participants must pre-register by visiting www.minitmed.com/pre-register-maui-covid-19. Participants are asked to come to the test site at their designated time.
Residents do not need to have insurance or meet any criteria to get tested for free. Participants must wear a face mask, and they are urged to come at their scheduled time. Results will be reported on the same day as testing. Minit Medical is administering the program sponsored by the County of Maui.
