KS is committed to providing testing options for students, faculty, and staff, so they can be informed about their health and care for their ʻohana. By participating in these testing efforts, you are taking action to keep our community healthy and safe.

COVID-19 Testing - How to complete your consent form

Mar. 12, 2021

One of our layered safety protocols in managing this pandemic is COVID-19 testing. Since November, Kamehameha Hawaiʻi has offered free, voluntary on-campus testing opportunities for students, faculty, and staff. 

In February, our campus began a monthly surveillance testing program through our Mālama Ola Health Services Department with students who had opted in to this testing. There will be two testing options available at the end of this month open to students and faculty & staff. 

In order to participate, Kamehameha Schools ʻohana need to complete a one-time consent form for their keiki accessible through the KS electronic health record system (EHR) Mo'omō'ali Olakino. This one-time consent grants Kamehameha Schools permission to administer COVID-19 tests during the remainder of the current school year.  

Instructions on how to complete the student consent form is available here. 

COMPLETE THE ONE-TIME CONSENT FORM

These surveillance tests are a saliva-based, PCR test. They serve as an additional layer to help us better understand how COVID-19 is impacting our campus community. Testing also gives those participating the opportunity to be informed about their health and take actions to care for their ʻohana and those around them. 

  • We’ll collect 1.0-1.5 mL of saliva.
  • For 1 hour beforehand, no eating, drinking, chewing gum, brushing teeth, or otherwise placing anything in your mouth, or the sample may be invalid.
  • Drooling is preferred as spitting can add air bubbles and mucus to the sample.

The video below from the CDC gives a rough idea of what saliva collection looks like.
