The Department has worked to prioritize HIDOE employees in the state’s new program for surge testing so that we can have better data about COVID positive cases in our communities. This information is important to have as we continue to make decisions. We encourage everyone to get tested, especially if you don’t feel well or have had close contact with someone with COVID-19.
As a reminder, all staff, service providers, parents and students should perform a wellness check prior to arrival at a HIDOE campus or office, http://bit.ly/HIDOEWellnessCheck.

- Pre-register at doineedacovid19test.com for a specific location and time slot. You will receive a voucher when you register that you are to bring with you to the site.
- Results will be sent to the email address that is provided during registration within three days of your test.
- Testing hours are fro 9am to 2pm. You may get tested during work hours with supervisor approval and your proof of registration voucher. Supervisors should ensure adequate staffing before approving requests. No leave form is required to take this short leave during the workday; only proof of registration voucher is required.
