UH West Oʻahu site for free COVID-19 testing, Sept. 12

COVID-19 drive-thru testing at UH West Oʻahu.

Visitors took part in free COVID-19 drive-thru testing on Aug. 30 at UH West Oʻahu. The campus has once again been chosen as a site for “surge testing” — by appointment only — this Saturday, Sept. 12.

The University of Hawaiʻi–West Oʻahu has been chosen as a site for free COVID-19 testing this Saturday, Sept. 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The UH West Oʻahu location is available for drive-thru testing only. UH employees and students are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity and pre-register for specific appointment times. The test will be a self administered nasal swab supervised by trained medical volunteers. The results will be emailed in three to five business days.

Testing is available to the public, so please plan accordingly for possible traffic delays and wait times. Please observe all physical distancing and face covering mandates.

The free testing at UH West Oʻahu is part of the “surge testing” by the City and County of Honolulu, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Office of the Surgeon General. The results will be kept confidential and only shared with DHHS and the individual voluntarily taking the test. For a full list of testing sites and to learn more about COVID-19 testing, visit the Do I Need a COVID-19 Test? website.

Campus will remain accessible for usual UH West Oʻahu business (e.g. The Bus, mail, deliveries, faculty, staff, students, and visitors). A UH West Oʻahu security officer should be available near the campus entrance to assist with UH West Oʻahu access.

Testing is also being held Sunday, Sept. 13, at UH Mānoa and Leeward Community College. Please click here for more information.
