The September Health Guidelines published by the County of Maui stipulated new guidelines that we will continue to follow and modify as required.
Halau is following the required protocols as are other Halau Schools. Halau is not considered a "Social Gathering" with limits of 5 indoors and 10 outdoors. Per the County Guidelines:
"A social gathering does not include, and this definition does not apply to businesses that have supervision, monitoring, and other enforcement protocols in place, such as events overseen by commercial event operators, or are otherwise subject to specific rules or restrictions, e.g., the state and federal court systems, state and federal offices and functions, Department of Education, daycares, preschools, private schools, universities, and similar institutions."
With this in mind it is very important that Haumana adhere responsibly to the following rules in Halau:
Please do not gather in groups outside.
Please line up outside the entrance, maintaining 6-foot distancing.
Your temperature will be checked and attendance taken, should tracing be required.
Do not enter the hall under any circumstances until your temperature has been verified to be within the safe zone. When your class time is ready you will be invited to enter.
Once in the Hall, be vigilant about your proximity to other students and maintain at least 6 feet distance at all times. Place your belongings apart from others' belongings to minimize contact.
Sanitize your hands upon entering.
If you are not feeling well or have any symptoms of illness, please do not come to Halau and let us know.
If you are not comfortable attending class in person, an option is to view the livestream on our new Facebook page. All classes will be streamed and available for future viewing.
