CDC lifts Level 4 'Do Not Travel' advisory for Guam

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention has lowered the travel risk alert for Guam from level 4 to 3, lifting the "Do Not Travel" advisory for the island.

Level 3, which advises against all non-essential travel to the destination, means "the outbreak is of high risk to travelers and no precautions are available to protect against the identified increased risk."

Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero welcomed the travel advisory revision.

“At the height of our second surge, Guam had a Covid Area Risk Score of 47. Through our collective efforts, our community brought this risk score down to 0.1. The CDC has recognized the success of our policies and the commitment of our people to do what is necessary to protect one another and have downgraded our travel risk from level 4 to level 3,” she said.

Over the last seven days, Guam has a rolling average of 2.5 Covid-19 positive cases a day. To date, there have been a total of 7,751 officially reported cases of COVID-19 with 133 deaths, 23 cases in active isolation, and 7,595 not in active isolation.
