Drive-through virus testing available Sunday in Hilo

Premier Medical Group and Bay Clinic, with the support of Hawaii County COVID-19 Task Force, will offer a drive-through screening and testing clinic.

The one-day clinic for COVID-19 will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday at Hilo’s Ho‘olulu Complex, the county announced today.


This clinic is open to the public, but 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.
