We use NAAT RT-PCR tests for detection of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, for the purposes of meeting the requirements of the State of Hawaii’s Pre-Travel Testing Program and other international travel requirements. The test is a self-administered nasal swab test that can be completed in as little as 30 seconds. Collection of mid-turbinate swabs are less invasive and generally more comfortable for customers, can be self-collected by customers and they can decrease the risk of exposure to health care providers by (1) reducing the duration of the procedure, and (2) allowing the passenger to perform self-collection while under supervision. Here is a short video to help you prepare for how to collect the sample: Youtube Link Here.
