Hilo sets pop-up COVID-19 screening for Sun 3/29

Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim’s press office has announced a COVID-19 screening in Hilo on Sunday, March 29.   Premier Medical Group and Bay Clinic, with the support of the County of Hawai`i COVID-19 Task Force, will offer the drive-through screening and testing clinic.

The one- day clinic for COVID-19 will be held at Hilo’s Ho`olulu Complex this Sunday from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

This clinic is open to the public; however, individuals must first undergo a screening to determine if they meet the criteria to be tested.  Clinic physicians on site will make the determination regarding testing.  The screening criteria will be based on guidance of the CDC and the State’s COVID-19 Response Task Force.

People who visit the screening clinic will be asked to show photo ID.  Additionally, people are requested to bring any health insurance cards they have, although insurance is not required.
