HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Honolulu Fire Department (HFD) on Monday reported that there will be no “Say Yes! COVID tests” available at any of their drive-thru testing sites until next week due to supply and shipping issues.

In late September, state officials reported that 65,000 people ordered the free kits, for a total of 520,000 tests. The overwhelming response forced the program to be temporarily put on hold.

The self-administered test kits cannot be used for workplace testing requirements or other programs. However, a City spokesperson said since these tests are antigen and FDA approved under emergency use authorization, they are acceptable under the Safe Access Oahu program.
