COVID-19 resources

Kamehameha Schools prioritizes the safety, health and well-being of their faculty, staff and haumāna. To maximize protection from COVID-19 and safeguard our worksites, in-person interview participants will be required to do ONE of the following:

  • Provide proof of vaccination: To be valid, vaccination requirements must be fulfilled (e.g. receiving one or two shots depending on vaccination type, and 2-weeks must have passed since receiving full vaccination).
    • Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your confirmed interview time to complete this process.
  • Complete a rapid COVID antigen test: This will be conducted on-site and results must be returned as negative in order to proceed with the interview process. Tests are provided by KS at no cost to the interviewee. Proof of any other negative COVID test will not be accepted.
    • Please arrive 25-30 minutes PRIOR to your confirmed interview time to allow sufficient time to complete this process.

In addition, all visitors are required to complete and clear the online KS Wellness Check-In or a hard copy wellness form prior to admittance. Masks are required to be worn in public indoor spaces at all times.

Effective December 17, 2021, ALL KS employees will be required to be fully vaccinated unless they are approved for a medical or religious exemption from vaccination. This applies to all staff 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 currently circulating, including the delta variant. KS strongly encourages staff, eligible students and family members to get vaccinated. Regardless of vaccination status, if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission, to maximize protection from the delta variant and possibly spreading it to others, you should wear a mask while in public indoor spaces.

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.

For more information on KS' safety protocols and approach to vaccinations, please visit our KS health updates website.
