COVID-19 Testing on Kauai


If You Are Sick

If you’re sick with symptoms of COVID-19 or have been identified as a close contact of a positive case, please isolate yourself immediately and get tested using a home test or by calling your doctor. 

Free test kits from the federal government can be ordered through and delivered by mail .

Kauai District Health Officer Dr. Janet Berreman: "Home test kits are a convenient way to reduce the risk of spreading COVID to others. If you have symptoms of COVID, use a home test immediately; if your self-test is negative remain in isolation and repeat the test on to two days later. If you've been exposed to someone with COVID, use the test three to four days after exposure, and test again on the fifth day. You can also use them before planning to gather indoors with others, especially people who are unvaccinated, older, or immunocompromised."

If you think you may be a candidate for COVID treatment or COVID preventive medication, talk to your healthcare provider. These medications require a prescription.
