Honolulu’s free COVID-19 tests for residents of Oahu at the airport have been extended for an additional week




    Health care workers assisted people with their COVID-19 tests at Terminal 2 of Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

City officials will continue to offer free COVID-19 testing to all Oahu residents in their mobile laboratory at Honolulu Airport through August 14.

Honolulu is extending the program for another week to ensure the tests remain accessible as the number of coronavirus cases in Hawaii continues to rise.

According to Lt. Gov. Josh Green, the number of daily new coronavirus cases in Hawaii remained high at 628 today, after hitting an all-time high of 655 on Thursday.

As of Thursday, 428 of the new cases were in Oahu, bringing the 7-day average for Honolulu County to 298 and the positivity rate to 7.3%.

Honolulu offers middle turbinate PCR testing in the Mobile Lab at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, located in the Diamond Head Tour Group Area just past Baggage Claim 31. The Mobile Lab is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., including public holidays.

Tests can be processed within six hours and the results made available to the participants.

The car park closest to the test site is the Terminal 2 car park, which is directly opposite Terminal 2. The entrance to this building can be reached from the second level of the airport access road directly opposite the administration tower opposite lobby 5.

All customers must pre-register in the city’s prepaid area at oahucitypass.lumisight.com. Those who pre-register for a test will receive a QR code after registration is complete and should bring a valid State ID with an Oahu address and zip code.

This testing program is made possible through an agreement with the National Kidney Foundation of Hawai’i Consortium. City officials will review the program weekly and extend availability beyond August 14th.
