Results are usually expected to be released within the same day, however if there are high daily testing volumes, results can sometimes take up to 16 hours. 


The patient will receive an email notification when results are ready. If the result is positive, Hawaii State Department of Health will follow up with the patient. In all cases, results are available online through the same system used for registration.


If your test is required for travel, to the degree possible, please be sure to allow plenty of time (at least one full day or more) in advance of your planned flight in order to avoid unforeseen circumstances.
