Pop up COVID-19 screening Saturday at Old Kona Airport

Ali’i Health, with the support of Premier Medical Group and the County of Hawai`i COVID-19 Task Force, will be conducting a drive-through screening and testing clinic.  The one-day clinic will be held at the Old Kona Airport Park on Saturday, March 28, 2020, 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.

To bypass the screening queue, patients can go to Pathways Telehealth by calling (808) 747-8321 option 5 to be screened and expedite testing. 

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.

There was a similar screening at Old Kona Airport on March 23.  The total number of those screened was 1629; the number who screened to be tested for COVID-19 was 299.

For further information, please call Civil Defense at 935-0031.
