This message was shared with the faculty and staff of the 10-campus University of Hawaiʻi system on August 13, 2021.
Aloha UH employees,
The vaccine mandate/weekly COVID-19 testing requirement for University of Hawaiʻi employees takes effect Monday, August 23, the first day of the fall semester, as previously announced.
The August 16 deadline for state and county employees announced by Gov. David Ige on August 5 does not apply to UH employees.
The university system is working with the three respective unions representing UH employees on a vaccination and testing policy. The policy is being finalized and will be announced as soon as possible.
Employees are encouraged to get vaccinated and must upload their vaccination information to the LumiSight UH app. A vaccination site near you can be found online. To find a testing center in Hawaiʻi, click on “COVID-19 Testing Sites” at the top for the latest list.
Mahalo for your patience, hard work and dedication.
The UH Office of Human Resources
