UH to Require COVID Masks for Fall Semester
By News Release @ 10:56 PM :: 1816 Views :: Higher Education, COVID-19

Update to UH masking policy effective immediately

UH News August 3, 2022

This message was shared with the students, faculty and staff of the 10-campus University of Hawaiʻi system on August 3, 2022.

In anticipation of the fall 2022 semester, and after consultation with our health advisors, the University of Hawaiʻi is updating the masking policy. Effective immediately:

Masking continues to be required indoors in:

Shared laboratory spaces
Tightly confined educational spaces, such as advising offices

Masking is highly recommended in all other indoor settings on campuses.

Individual campuses may also require masking in other indoor and outdoor venues. Examples may include situations with large numbers of people in close proximity or where it is anticipated that high numbers of higher-risk persons will be attending. Masking requirements will be posted at such venues and events.

These masking guidelines will be in effect from now through the first month of classes—until September 19. We will be consulting with our health advisors throughout this time and will announce any changes by that date. Please continue to monitor your email for updates.

The retention of this indoor masking requirement will help everyone safely begin the semester while all but one of our counties is at a “high” COVID-19 community level. This guidance also recognizes increasing face-to-face interaction this fall among students as well as employees who may have traveled recently from outside of the state.

As always, all members of the UH community are expected to respect the individual choices of others to wear masks even where not required.

Please refer to the UH COVID-19 Guidelines for more details on masking and other safety practices relating to protection of yourself and others from COVID-19.
