HIDOE to offer surge testing at Oahu schools this weekend

Employees, families encouraged to get tested

The Hawaii State Department of Education is hosting surge testing sites at several Oahu schools over the holiday weekend to accommodate HIDOE employees and their families.

Due to high demand, the City and County of Honolulu had to adjust the locations for its surge testing program. Information the department shared about previous testing locations has since changed to accommodate larger crowds at centralized sites—such as on the H-3 Freeway and at Aloha Stadium—to minimize neighborhood traffic and long lines.

HIDOE testing sites will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. as follows:

Sunday, Sept. 6

  • Kailua High
  • Mililani High

Monday, Sept. 7 (Labor Day)

  • Ewa Makai Middle
  • Farrington High
  • Kaiser High
  • Waianae Intermediate

Pre-register at doineedacovid19test.com for a specific location and time slot to expedite the process. You will receive a voucher when you register that you are to bring with you to the site.

Results will be sent to the email address provided during registration within three days of your test.

Walk-ins will be accepted if you're not able to pre-register. Please note that these are not drive-through sites; they are walk-up only.
