AlohaSafe Alert COVID-19 Notification App

The Hawaiʻi State Department of Health (DOH) in partnership with aio Digital
and the Hawaii Executive Collaborative has launched AlohaSafe Alert, a free, COVID-19 exposure notification app.

Once added to your smartphone, AlohaSafe Alert will send a notification within 48 hours if you come into close contact-within six feet for at least 15 minutes-with someone, who is also using the app, tests positive for the virus in the previous 14 days. All data collected will be kept anonymous, and only DOH will have
access to it.

The University of Hawaiʻi joins DOH in encouraging everyone to download and utilize the AlohaSafe Alert app. The more people who use the app, the more effective it will be to stop the spread of COVID-19.

UH Reopening Strategy

This graphic shows the COVID-19 impact levels and corresponding status of UH operations during the pandemic. It is aligned with the State of Hawaiʻi impact level matrix that can be found at the Recovery Navigator website.

Campus openings and operations will match the impact level of the state and the campus’ respective county. For example, a yellow “act with care” level for the state and corresponding county would lead to a yellow “act with care” for the campus.
