As of March 26, the University of Hawaii Maui College and other UH campuses will remove some COVID-19 requirements.

Daily COVID-19 screening through the LumiSight UH health app will no longer be required.

Face masks will not be required outdoors; in common areas such as hallways, stairwells, lobbies and bathrooms, offices, restaurants, libraries and bookstores; and at indoor events, unless the organizers so request. Instructors will also not be required to wear face masks while teaching as long as they keep a 6-foot distance to others.

Visitors will not be required to provide evidence of vaccination or negative test results to attend campus events.

For the remainder of the spring semester, face masks are required indoors in classrooms, common laboratories, other classrooms, and closely defined classrooms such as counseling offices. Face masks should also be worn by anyone who tests positive for COVID, has symptoms of the virus, or has been exposed to anyone with the virus during the isolation or quarantine period.

Individuals with medical or religious exemptions from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement must continue to submit evidence of a negative COVID test on the LumiSight UH app.

The changes are based on recommendations from the UH COVID-19 Health and Wellbeing Working Group, which consists of UH medical and public health experts and UH management, according to a UH news release.
