About us

COVID-19 resources

In alignment with current state regulations, Kamehameha Schools (KS) has relaxed the COVID-19 safeguards and procedures governing our worksites and facilities. We look forward to welcoming our employees and visitors back for in-person engagements, and while KS does not require social distancing, please note that masks are still required to be worn in public indoor spaces at all times.

As an employer, KS requires all staff to be fully vaccinated unless approved for a medical or religious exemption from vaccination, regardless of work status (in-person, hybrid or remote).


Vaccination information

COVID-19 vaccines are effective at helping protect against severe disease and death from variants of the virus that causes COVID-19. KS strongly encourages staff, eligible students and family members to get vaccinated.

For the latest on COVID-19 vaccinations available across the pae ‘āina, visit the Hawai‘i State Department of Health's COVID-19 vaccine information page, or the following health care system websites. For questions specific to your ‘ohana, contact your primary care physician.
