Gov Lou Leon Guerrero

Guam will move to Pandemic Condition of Readiness 3 effective midnight on Monday, July 20, Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero announced today.

“As has been said before, reopening Guam will be slow, gradual, and deliberate. Every decision made is based on the data we have and our ability to manage and respond to the threat of Covid-19,” the governor said at Friday’s press conference.

To date, there have been a total of 314 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 5 deaths, 222 released from isolation, and 87 active cases. Of those cases, 267 are classified as civilians and 47 are military service members.

“Collectively, we have made great progress since the public health emergency was declared on March 14, and I am confident in the measured approach we are taking and the direction we are heading.”

Under PCOR 3, all businesses will be allowed to operate with the exception of senior citizen centers and organized sports leagues, tournaments and events, subject to all the prior minimum requirements published by the Department of Public Health and Social Services.

Leon Guerrero reminded the community that the goal is not simply to move from one PCOR to another; rather, she added, “it is to reopen our economy in a way that protects both lives and livelihoods.”

The Guam Visitors Bureau welcomed the governor's PCOR3 declaration.
