HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The city’s mobile testing lab at Honolulu’s airport is ramping up operations ― and is now a trusted inter-county testing partner.

The National Kidney Foundation is the project organizer.

Initially, the project was catered to first responders and their families and state and federal airport workers. But now, you can head there to get tested for inter-island travel.

The team can process 10,000 tests a day and you can get your results processed in three to six hours.

The mobile lab will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The city spent about $16 million in their CARES Act funding in the facility.

Tests cost about $125 on a walk-in basis.

Thousands of tests can be processed per day, but the weekend only saw about 150 people per day.
