City officials are offering free COVID-19 testing for all Oahu residents starting this Friday at its Mobile Lab at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

The City and County of Honolulu is able to offer the free COVID-19 tests through an agreement with the National Kidney Foundation of Hawai‘i Consortium. The PCR mid-turbinate test will be available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from July 23 to 31.

Results can be provided to participants within six hours.

“COVID-19 is still prevalent in our community and the recent rise in cases is alarming,” said Mayor Rick Blangiardi in a news release. “Identifying where this virus is spreading is incredibly important in the effort to stop its spread. We would like to thank the Kidney Foundation of Hawai‘i Consortium for its continued work at protecting the City and County of Honolulu. I also want to thank everyone who has acted responsibly for their families and their communities by getting vaccinated against this disease.”

To be tested, all clients must pre-register under the City pre-paid section at oahucitypass.lumisight.com. Those being tested must also bring a valid state ID displaying their Oahu address and zip code.

The testing site is in the Diamond Head Tour Group Area, just past baggage claim 31, at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.
