HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Drive-thru COVID-19 testing is taking place again this week.

On Saturday, testing will be done at the Waipio Peninsula Soccer Complex from 8 a.m. to noon.

Premier Medical Group Hawaiʻi’s Dr. Scott Miscovich will once again be the lead on the effort to test residents. Those who show up for a test will be screened for symptoms.

This comes the same day as Dr. Josh Green said officials will begin testing asymptomatic people who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive.

No testing is planned for Kakaako this weekend. For more information, call Premier Medical Group Hawaii at (808) 304-8816 or (808) 367-6020.

On Hawaii Island, testing will take place at the Hilo Civic Center’s Ho`olulu Complex on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Those who go for testing are being asked to enter through the Pi’ilani/Hinano entrance. Patients will have to undergo a prior screening to determine eligibility for tests.

The state Dept. of Health says symptomatic people are priority over asymptomatic folks.
