While generally closed on state holidays, the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall testing site will be open on Monday, Jan. 17, due to the extremely high demand for testing.

“Mahalo to all the staff and volunteers who are working tirelessly at the Convention Hall to help keep our community safe,” said Mayor Derek S. K. Kawakami. “We thank you and all our frontline health workers from the bottom of our hearts for your continued efforts.”

The site will be open from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will follow the current ticketing system. This ticketing system is meant to prevent extended lines and crowds due to the current high demand for testing. Testing at this site is not for those who are experiencing symptoms. If you are sick with COVID symptoms, please seek testing at a drive-thru or clinical site.

At the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall, ticket distribution begins at 8 a.m. Five-hundred tickets each day are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets will include a time to return for a testing appointment later that same day. Please note that all tickets are generally gone by 9 a.m., due to high demand.

To avoid overcrowding, those with tickets for testing appointments are asked to return at their testing time or wait in their vehicles until their testing time.

The Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall testing center is located at 4191 Hardy Street in Līhu‘e. It is open Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; closed on weekends and holidays, unless needed.

The Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall offers free rapid PCR COVID-19 testing with same-day results, provided by the County of Kaua‘i in partnership with the Kaua‘i District Health Office. Photo ID is required for adults. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
