    COURTESY MAUI COUNTY

    Motorists waited in line, in April, for COVID-19 tests by Minit Medical staff today at South Maui Community Park Gymnasium.

Maui County has launched a free, COVID-19 community testing program, according to Maui Mayor Mike Victorino, at three, drive-up test sites on the island of Maui.

Minit Medical is administering the program at standing community testing sites in West Maui, South Maui and Central Maui. Residents do not need to have insurance or meet any criteria to get tested for free.

The tests, however, do not qualify for the state’s pre-travel testing program and are not valid for interisland travel.

All participants must pre-register at minitmed.com/pre-register-maui-covid-19 or call 667-6161 ext.7 for help and more information.

“The County is offering these tests completely free to keep our community safe and healthy,” said Victorino in a news release. “You don’t need to have any symptoms, and it’s a very quick and easy testing program that we encourage everyone to participate in.”

Those who are interested can pre-register for the following locations and times:

>> Lahaina/West Maui – 305 Keawe Street (temporary site located in parking lot), 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Monday and Thursday this month and November

>> Kihei/Wailea – 1280 South Kihei Road (behind Ace Hardware), 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Tuesday and Friday this month and November

>> Kahului – 348 Lehuakona Street (behind Maui Marketplace), 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Wednesday and Saturday this month and November.

More locations and dates may be added at a later time. Officials remind those interested that they must pre-register and go to one of the drive-up sites, not a Minit Medical Urgent Care clinic for the free community COVID-19 testing.
