The following safety guidelines and infection prevention measures are based on the Center for
Disease Control (CDC) and the State of Hawaiʻi Department of Health recommendations for
Covid-19 and other infections.
Papahana Kuaola will support healthy hygiene behaviors by providing adequate supplies,
including soap, hand sanitizer, disinfectant products, paper towels, and disposable face
coverings for visitor and staff use. We do ask that individuals and groups be prepared as well by
bringing their own cleaning and disinfecting supplies as needed. We also welcome the
implementation of any additional group precautions they may have while visiting Waipao.
PK Safety Guidelines and Infection Prevention Measures
NO COMMUNITY ACCESS TO INDOOR AREAS
(unless access necessary or permitted by staff)
MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING OF AT LEAST 6 FEET
from other people, especially indoors. Multiple groups of 10 people are allowed (including 1
staff member per group) as long as the individual groups are distanced while onsite.
WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN
with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an
alcohol-based hand-sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
AVOID TOUCHING YOUR EYES, NOSE, AND MOUTH WITH UNWASHED HANDS
ROUTINELY CLEAN AND DISINFECT HIGH TOUCH SURFACES
made of plastic or metal, such as railings, tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops,
handles, desks, phones, keyboards, faucets, sinks, and toilets.
COVER YOUR MOUTH AND NOSE
with a cloth face covering in indoor and outdoor settings where social distancing is difficult to
maintain. NOTE: A face covering may or may not be recommended or required depending on
the particular situation, program, event, activity, and/or individual participant comfort levels.
