HCC Implements COVID-19 Health and Safety Program

As seen in the August 2020 issue of Waikiki Improvement Association’s Wiki Wiki Wire newsletter.

The Hawai‘i Convention Center has implemented a comprehensive health and safety program developed by leading venue and event management company ASM Global to ensure the highest levels of health and safety for staff, guests and communities.

In compliance with guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the State of Hawai‘i Department of Health, these extensive measures include enhanced cleaning and sanitation for high-touch surfaces, the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), modified food and beverage operations, the increased availability of hand sanitizer dispensers, contactless transactions, special signage and social distancing markers.

The Center recently installed thermal scanners at several main entrances. In locations where thermal cameras are not available, temporal thermometers will be used. Anyone displaying a temperature over 100.4 degrees F will be taken to a private area for a secondary temperature screening. Employees or guests confirmed to have a temperature over 100.4 degrees will be evaluated by medical personnel.

The Center is also using VenueShield, ASM Global’s proprietary environmental hygiene protocol, which is being deployed at more than 325 facilities worldwide. The VenueShield program offers best practices that include state-of-the-art standard operating procedures for environmental hygiene.

While the Center remains closed to the public, it has continued to welcome volunteers and staff from the Office of Elections for vote counting.
