The twice-weekly clinics will be held on Mondays and Thursdays from 8:00 <br />a.m. to noon, starting April 2 and continuing until further notice. <br /> <br />The clinic will be held at the Keauhou Shopping Center. <br /> <br />These clinics will replace the drive-through clinics that were held at the Old Kona <br />Airport. No testing will be held this weekend at the Old Kona Airport. <br /> <br />These free clinics are open to the public. However, individuals must first undergo a <br />screening to determine if they meet the criteria to be tested. Clinic physicians on site <br />will make the determination regarding testing. The screening criteria will be based on <br />the guidance of the CDC and the State’s COVID-19 Response Task Force. <br /> <br />To bypass the screening queue, patients can go to Pathways Telehealth by calling <br />(808) 747-8321 option 5 to be screened and expedite testing. <br /> <br />People who visit the screening clinic will be asked to show photo ID. Additionally, <br />people are requested to bring any health insurance cards they have, although insurance <br />is not required. <br /> <br />For further information, please call Civil Defense at 935-0031. <br /> <br /> <br />County of Hawai‘i is an Equal Opportunity Provider and Employer. <br />
