Health Protocols: vaccination, testing, Lumisight UH

Will a COVID-19 vaccination be required for students being on-campus?

The COVID-19 vaccination has been added to the University of Hawaiʻi student health clearance requirements as of the fall 2021 semester. To be on a UH campus or property, students must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. As with existing health clearance requirements, students will be able to request exemptions for medical and religious reasons. Students are required to load their vaccination information to the Lumisight UH app. You need a green “You may report to campus” status with the current date on the app to be on campus.

See the COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement for Students FAQs page for more details.

Are employees required to be vaccinated?

Employees are required to either be vaccinated for COVID-19 or submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test result weekly to be on campus.

What protocols are in place for coming to campus?

First and foremost, stay home if you are sick.

In order to be on campus, students, along with all employees and campus visitors, are required to use a daily, check-in mobile app (Android or iOS) or web form that monitors/screens for COVID-19 symptoms called LumiSight UH. You must receive a green “You may report to campus” status with the current date on the app to be on campus.

For the fall 2021 semester, anyone who is unvaccinated and wants to come to campus must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result weekly.

Checking in daily using the LumiSight UH app is simple and will take less than 30 seconds. The user will review the list of symptoms and possible exposure to COVID-19 in the app, answer “yes” or “no,” and the app will indicate if they are cleared to come to campus.

Can we update vaccination information to Lumisight UH?

You can upload your vaccination information to Lumisight UH. Instructions to upload your vaccination information: Lumisight UH web app or Lumisight UH app on iPhones. For assistance with Lumisight UH, check the Lumisight UH FAQ or contact help@hawaii.edu.

You are not allowed to return to campus until you are cleared by University Health Services Mānoa.

Do I need to be screened before coming to a UH campus/facility?

Everyone needs a green “You may report to campus” status with the current date on the LumiSight UH daily health check-in app to be on campus. The LumiSight UH app screens for possible COVID-19 symptoms and exposure and stores vaccination information or weekly proof of a negative COVID-19 test result.

Do I need to be tested for COVID-19 before coming to a UH campus/property?

Beginning Monday, August 23, 2021, 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 must be taken within 7 days of when you need to be on campus, or an antigen test must be taken within 3 days of when you need to be on campus.

Visitors and vendors must also follow this requirement. Delivery service workers such as the U.S. Postal Service, FedEx and UPS are not required to provide proof due to the limited/transient exposure to the 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 https://hawaiicovid19.com/ and click on “testing.” Testing at sites other than the 24 CLH locations are not free.

Will UH provide testing for faculty/staff/students?

A COVID-19 test is required if you are not vaccinated. A PCR test must be taken within 7 days of when you need to be on campus, or an antigen test must be taken within 3 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 https://hawaiicovid19.com/ and click on “testing.” Testing at sites other than the 24 CLH locations are not free.

What if I had COVID-19 recently? My test will be positive.

There is an exemption for unvaccinated students who recently contracted and recovered from COVID-19. In the 90 day period from the point of positive test result, they will likely test positive for up to 90 days. The university encourages these students to get vaccinated (which could be done as soon as 10 days after the date of first symptoms/positive test, if they have no fever, and symptoms are resolved). After the 90 day period, they will be required to test weekly until fully vaccinated for the remainder of the fall 2021 semester.

If you have been fully vaccinated but have recently tested positive (within the last 90 days) for COVID-19, you may not return to campus or attend any in-person activities until you are officially cleared by your medical provider and should isolate for the recommended duration as advised by your medical provider.

Submit your forms to Student Health Services Mānoa.

Beginning in spring 2022, students are required to either be vaccinated or apply for a medical and religious exemption. There will be no testing option for unvaccinated students.

Do I have to wear a face mask?

Everyone on campus must wear face masks indoors. This includes classrooms, laboratories, offices, shops and common spaces such as hallways and elevators.

Face masks are not required when outdoors, including lanais/patios. They are strongly recommended in crowded outdoor settings and for activities with close contact with others.

You are not required to wear a face mask while working in isolation, (e.g., if you are working in a room by yourself) or if you have a medical condition or disability and wearing a face mask poses a health or safety risk. Reasonable accommodations will be made in those instances.


Protocols for Exposed and/or Diagnosed Individuals

What do I do if I or someone close to me tests positive?

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, come into close contact with someone who tested positive or were told to quarantine or isolate, stay home and notify the UH Mānoa COVID-19 Resource Team at University Health Services Mānoa as soon as possible at (808) 956-8965 or uhsm.covid@hawaii.edu.

If someone is believed to have symptoms that may be COVID-19 related, what should they do?

Students can report a suspected case to UH Mānoa COVID-19 Resource Team at University Health Services Mānoa – (808) 956-8965 or uhsm.covid@hawaii.edu.

Will students and employees be notified if someone tests positive?

UH Mānoa will not publicly disclose the identity of anyone who tests positive, which is against multiple federal laws. Positive cases reported on campus in the previous 14 days will be announced via email if that case is considered to be a risk to campus safety. Close contacts of the positive case will be notified. The number of positive cases reported on campus are also listed on UH’s website.

Will UH ensure my confidentiality if I have/am exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19?

The university follows all laws that protect the privacy of students and employees, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). No personal identifiable data will be collected by the daily health check-in app.

The university will not disclose the identity of any employee or student who is exposed, diagnosed with, or is suspected of having COVID-19, except for those who need to be notified, such as the Hawaiʻi Department of Health. All positive cases must be reported to the health department, which is responsible for the state’s COVID-19 pandemic response, including contacting close contacts of infected individuals.

How will you ensure these health and well-being guidelines are up-to-date?

The guidelines will be updated based on the status of the pandemic and when government guidance is updated. All major changes in guidance will be immediately and broadly communicated to the campus community via email announcements and other channels.

I live in the residence halls/apartments. What do I do if I test positive for COVID-19?

Report your positive test result to your Resident Assistants and/or Residence Director and University Health Services Mānoa (808-956-8965 or uhsm.covid@hawaii.edu) immediately, self-isolate in your room and wait for the housing staff to contact you with quarantine instructions.

Student Learning

How will courses be delivered in fall 2021?

Instruction for fall 2021 will have more in-person classes than the two previous semesters. The instruction mode of every course (online synchronous, online asynchronous or online combination, hybrid or in-person) is available in the STAR registration system.

What if course delivery changes?

A course will never change from online to hybrid, or in-person or from hybrid to entirely in-person. The university is prepared to go entirely online depending on the status of the pandemic. All students should be aware and prepared for that possibility.

How will UH communicate with me about any changes in class delivery, etc. that may arise because of the pandemic?

If the campus moves to all online delivery, there will be broad communications across all of the campus communications platforms including email, social media, appropriate UH websites (MyUH, UHNews.org) and the mainstream media.

How many students will be in a class at once?

It depends on the size of the room. Each classroom and teaching laboratory has been reconfigured to ensure 3 feet of social distancing, which has reduced room capacity in some rooms.

Am I required to wear a face mask?

Everyone on campus must wear face masks indoors. This includes classrooms, laboratories, offices, shops and common spaces such as hallways and elevators.

Face masks are not required when outdoors, including lanais/patios. They are strongly recommended in crowded outdoor settings and for activities with close contact with others.

You are not required to wear a face mask while working in isolation, (e.g., if you are working in a room by yourself) or if you have a medical condition or disability where wearing a face mask poses a health or safety risk. Reasonable accommodations will be made in those instances.

What will in-person classrooms be like?

Classrooms and teaching laboratories have been reconfigured to ensure 3-feet of physical distancing and are cleaned daily. Everyone is required to wear a face mask, and each classroom and lab is equipped with hand sanitizer stations. In-person courses where physical distancing cannot be maintained may require students to be fully vaccinated to participate.

Do I have to disclose my vaccination status to my professors?

Yes, faculty or staff may ask for confirmation of your vaccination status before participating with in-person activities. You may show your LumiSight UH “You may report to campus” status with the current date to reflect the confirmation that you have completed the required daily check-in, AND are fully vaccinated, or have a current negative COVID-19 test result.

Will my student fees be reimbursed if I am only taking online courses?

Per UH policy “Students shall be required to pay mandatory student fees for student publications, student government, technology, and campus communication/student broadcast fees at all campuses at which they are enrolled, regardless of whether the course is taught online or at a distance.”

For the Fall 2021 semester, all students will be assessed mandatory fees as set forth in the Executive Policy.

The 10 campuses of the University of Hawaiʻi collect fees from students to support co-curricular and instructional activities, as described in Executive Policy 6.208, which sets forth authorized student fees, including those that are mandatory.

Co-curricular Fees

The 10 campuses of the University of Hawaiʻi collect fees from students to support co-curricular and instructional activities, as described in Board of Regents Policy 6.208, which sets forth authorized student fees, including those that are mandatory.

Mandatory student fees are generally assessed of all students, in amounts set in accordance with Board policies, and as set forth in a fees schedule attached to Executive Policy EP 6.208.

For the Fall 2021 semester, all students will be assessed mandatory fees as set forth in the Executive Policy. Per the Executive Policy, the following mandatory student fees are required of all students:

  • student publications
  • student government
  • technology
  • campus communication/student broadcast fees

The following campus-based student fees will not be assessed of students who are being purely taught entirely online or at a distance:

  • student activity and program fees
  • campus center
  • student recreation
  • student health fee
  • student transportation/UPASS fees
  • Athletics

Explanation

The quality and excellence of the University of Hawaiʻi rests on both the curricular (academic) and co-curricular (non-academic) programs that campuses offer. Just as tuition assessed by the campus is invested to enhance the educational experience for all its students through its library, labs, technology resources and classroom facilities, so too are mandatory student fees assessed to enhance the out-of-classroom educational experience for all students through such co-curricular programs as theater, intramural sports, band, intercollegiate athletics, student newspaper, campus radio station, student government, student center, student clubs, organizations and more. The university values the transformative potential of educational experiences and opportunities offered by the co-curriculum that is available to students.

Instruction-related Fees

Instruction-related fees will be reviewed to determine if students are receiving the full benefit of the fees and will be refunded where appropriate.

Professional fees may be assessed to students enrolled in select undergraduate professional programs that have high costs in comparison to other instructional programs with the same tuition. Revenues from fees are earmarked to ensure programs have the equipment, supplies and services to meet accreditation standards.

Course and laboratory fees may be assessed to students enrolled in select courses that have unique costs in comparison to standard offerings or that are outside the normal credit course offerings. These include numerous labs in the natural sciences, art courses that require materials to be purchased, software associated with courses, and in some cases, field trip costs. The courses with associated fees are still meeting, and online labs require demonstrations that continue to utilize the purchased equipment and supplies

In cases where students are not able to benefit from the use of specific consumable supplies usually purchased with the course fees, the fees for these courses will be refunded to students.


Housing/Dining/Student Services

Housing Services

What do I do if I contract COVID-19?
