Governor Ige’s reimplementation of the stay-at-home order for Oʻahu, effective Aug. 27, Thursday, will affect in-person instruction, facilities and dining services at UH Mānoa according to Provost Michael Bruno in an email sent Tuesday evening.
For at least the next two weeks, UH deans and chairs are expected to further reduce in-person activities and classes to promote social distancing. Students will be hearing about these adjustments in the next few days.
The Warrior Recreation Center will be closed and resident dining halls will be providing take-out only. Modifications for non-residence dining services are still being discussed and will be announced when decisions have been made.
Essential services such as University Health Services, Counseling and Student Development Center and the Children's Center will remain open.
Both Hamilton and Sinclair libraries will remain open with a reduction of in-person staff.
Provost Bruno encourages all UH Mānoa faculty, staff and students to follow the new guidelines to flatten the surge of cases Oʻahu has experienced for the past month.
“During this time of stay-at-home/work-from-home, please take good care of yourselves and those around you. Wash your hands. Stay socially distanced. Keep monitoring your overall well being. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our Manoa campus community,” Bruno said.
