    A man is swabbed by a medical worker with Premier Medical Group Hawaii at a drive-thru COVID-19 testing site on Saturday at Waipio Peninsula Soccer Complex in Waipahu. The organization will hold another screening in Waianae on Thursday.

Drive-thru testing for COVID-19 will be held Thursday at the Waianae Small Boat Harbor from 9 a.m. to noon.

Free testing will be conducted by Dr. Scott Miscovich and his organization, Premier Medical Group Hawaii, at the boat harbor located at 85-471 Farrington Highway.

The medical group has conducted drive-thru testings at Kakaako Waterfront Park and the Waipio Peninsula Soccer Complex over the past two weekends.

Testing will be available for those experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath.

Mayor Kirk Caldwell said today there will be another drive-thru testing event Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at Waipio Peninsula Soccer Complex.

“We need to be more aggressive in testing,” Caldwell said in a statement. “The enemy is the COVID-19 virus. We know it’s out there, we now need to find out exactly where it is. The only way we do that is through more testing.”

For more information on the Waianae testing site, call Premier Medical Group Hawaii at 808-304-8816 or 808-367-6020.
