FREE Post-Travel Testing for Kauai Residents Returning from Out-of-State Travel

Kauai residents returning from mainland travel pose a greater risk of introducing COVID-19 because of the ways in which they interact in our community. Residents interact with their families, household members, co-workers, and friends and neighbors on a daily basis—thus potentially exposing many more people than the typical visitor would expose. Please do your part in protecting our kupuna and other residents at high risk of severe disease by staying home as long as you can after your return and then coming in to get a free COVID-19 test 4-10 days after your return. The test offered by the County of Kauai is a rapid point of care PCR test that looks for active infection. You will receive your results the same day. While a second test adds an additional layer of protection, it will not succeed at capturing all cases of COVID-19. Please remember that you can still develop disease up to 14 days after your return. It is very important that you take extra precautions during the two weeks following your return to Kauai by limiting your contact with others, always wearing your mask, and maintaining physical distance (greater than 6 feet) from anyone outside of your immediate household. If you become sick at any time during the 14 days after your return, even if you’ve had a negative test, contact your health care provider and let him/her know that you have traveled and are not feeling well. They can order a COVID-19 test for you if needed.
