COVID-19 Testing & Vaccination Locations and LumiSight UH

  • Testing: Beginning Monday, August 23, unvaccinated students and employees, and those not fully vaccinated (two weeks after final dose), are required to provide weekly proof of a negative COVID-19 test from a UH-recognized testing facility to be on a UH campus or property. A PCR test is required (antigen tests are not accepted) if you are not vaccinated and it must be taken within 7 days of when you need to be on campus. For the fall 2021 semester, Clinical Labs of Hawaiʻi (CLH) has been contracted to provide FREE PCR tests at 24 locations across the state. Make an appointment with CLH.
    For other state-approved testing locations go to and click on “testing.” Testing at sites other than the 24 CLH locations are not free.
  • Vaccinations: Use the CDC Vaccine Finder to find COVID-19 vaccines at a pharmacy or retail location in your neighborhood, or text your ZIP code to 438829. For more information about the COVID-19 vaccine in Hawaiʻi visit the Department of Health (DOH) COVID-19 site.
  • LumiSight UH: Anyone who plans to be on campus physically is required to use and complete the daily UH health check-in with the LumiSight UH mobile app (Android or iOS) and/or web browser that will include a brief questionnaire on COVID-19 symptoms and possible exposure. Proof of vaccination or weekly testing must also be uploaded to Lumisight UH before a “You may report to campus” status will show.
