State expands trusted partners for inter-island, domestic travel program

Trusted travel testing partners are increasing in Hawaii as the air travel industry continues its slow bounce back.

The state has added the city’s mobile testing unit at the Honolulu airport as one of the new trusted partners for interisland COVID-19 testing.

The mobile lab was originally only available to first responders, and airport and city workers, but is now available to local residents and visitors traveling from county to county.

Up to 10,000 test per day can be processed at the lab, and the results can be obtained within three to six hours.

This is just one of several new trusted partners for the state. Negative test results will be accepted from the new partners starting Nov.17.

The latest additions of partners are outlined in the list below:

Testing is available with the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaiʻi’s Consortium, through an agreement with the City and County of Honolulu, at the Daniel K.
