The wait is finally over for Vulcan fans—as of October 18, the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo has been approved by the County of Hawaiʻi to allow 50% capacity for volleyball and soccer games.
- All attendees must provide proof of vaccination upon entry.
To attend a UH Hilo sporting event, spectators must be fully vaccinated. A minor under the age of 12 may attend with a parent/legal guardian (masking required). A person is considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 when more than two weeks have passed since receiving the second dose in a two-dose series, or when more than two weeks have passed since receiving a single-dose vaccination.
It is preferred and strongly recommended that all fans planning on attending the event download the LumiSight UH app, an application developed for UH institutions by DataHouse. The LumiSight UH app will ask guests to upload their vaccination card and fill out a quick assessment of their current state of health.
Once you have completed the LumiSight UH app questionnaire and uploaded your vaccination card, the front page will read “You are clear to come on campus,” which you will then show the UH Hilo representative at the front entrance. The LumiSight UH app will validate your vaccination card, so you do not need to bring the hard copy with you. It can take up to several days to validate, so proof of vaccination should be uploaded at least three days before the event.
If you are incapable of downloading the LumiSight UH app, you must bring your vaccination card with you. Your hard copy will be checked upon arrival.
- Masks must be worn at all times.
Spectators must wear face coverings at all times with the exception of removing their face covering to briefly drink or eat.
- Fans must physically distance themselves and sit in the appropriate areas.
For soccer, fans are only allowed to sit in the baseball stadium bleachers. Fans may not go down to the field or any other location. Fans must wear their masks at all times and physically distance themselves from other parties.
For volleyball, fans must also be physically distanced and wear masks for the entire duration of their attendance. The Vulcan Gym bleachers will be marked off accordingly to comply with physical distancing practices.
UH Hilo Athletics will start accepting fans at home competitions beginning October 19 for women’s and men’s soccer. The women’s and men’s soccer teams are set to play against Concordia Irvine on October 19 at 12 p.m. and 2:30 p.m HST respectively. For those who cannot attend, the games will be live streamed, and live stats will be available online.
