As COVID-19 cases surge on Oʻahu, the city is expanding hours for testing at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, testing will be held from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. All other days the test site will operate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

"Testing is especially important with the Omicron variant as many people are asymptomatic and the test informs them if they are positive, allowing them to take precautions to prevent further spread in our community," Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi said.

Testing at the airport is conducted by the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii, and funded by the City and County of Honolulu.

You can register for a test at oahucitypass.lumisight.com. For more information on other free testing sites on Oʻahu, visit oneoahu.org/covid19-testing.
