Keep Hawaii Healthy

 

COVID-19 Screening Sites

The Healthcare Association of Hawaii has put together a statewide list of COVID-19 Screening Sites. Please carefully review the instructions for each site as some do not accept walk ins but a few sites will accept walk ins. Kaiser patients can only go to one of the Kaiser clinics but you need to call the listed number first.

Patients need to bring insurance cards and a picture ID if you are referred to any of the screening sites.
