Administrators at the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College continue to prepare the campus for student arrival on Aug. 24, 2020.
Due to COVID-19, administrators say the college is carefully following all guidelines outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to ensure the safety and wellbeing of students and faculty. This includes temperature checks, sanitizing and disinfecting stations around campus, enforcing proper distancing throughout and UV cleaning.
