Attendees must follow the following protocols:

A person is considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 when more than two weeks has passed since receiving the second dose in a two-dose series, or when more than two weeks has passed since receiving a single-dose vaccination.
- All fans planning on attending UH Hilo sporting events are encouraged to download the LumiSight UH app which will allows guests to upload their vaccination card and fill out a quick assessment of their current state of health. This app will validate vaccination cards, so it will not be necessary to bring a hard copy. Those incapable of downloading the LumiSight UH app, will need to bring a a physical copy of their vaccination card and show it upon arrival.
- Spectators must wear face coverings at all times with the exception of removing their face covering to briefly drink or eat.
- Fans must physically distance themselves while sitting in appropriate areas.
Soccer fans are only allowed to sit in the baseball stadium bleachers and may not go down to the field or anywhere else. Volleyball fans must also be physically distanced and wear masks for the entire duration of their attendance. The Vulcan Gym bleachers will be marked off accordingly to comply with physical distancing practices.
