To reduce the risk of Covid, there are a few rules and systems in place for the volunteer events. The rules include things like maintaining social distancing, wearing masks in the visitors center and all indoor areas, proper sanitizing, and limiting group size. We follow these to protect everyone who visits or works here. We want to do our part to keep the case load in Hawaii low and keep our loved ones safe. I apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, but it is all part of the efforts being made by our management to reduce the risks faced by our staff, visitors, volunteers and local community, so we truly appreciate you doing your part to support this system. We will be sure to inform participants of any further changes and make sure that these rules are simple and relatively easy to follow.
