Mayor Kawakami says the post-arrival test will help to prevent community spread.

To qualify for a post-arrival test, the resident must first receive a negative pre-travel test and qualify for a quarantine exemption via the Safe Travels app.

The post-arrival testing center will be located at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and results will be available the same day.
