The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention has lowered Guam's travel risk from level 4 to 2, indicating moderate risk of exposure to Covid-19.
“We welcome CDC’s downgrade in travel risk for Guam from very high to moderate. This complements our recently updated protocols that allow vaccinated travelers to enter our borders without quarantine,” Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero said.
“We also have a unique opportunity to share Guam’s vaccination success with expatriates in our region--an initiative we expect to roll out shortly. Additionally, I have requested to increase Guam’s vaccine supply to enable non-U.S. citizens to travel to Guam for their shots.”
The Joint Information Center today reported five new cases of Covid-19 out of 516 tests performed on Monday, June 7.
To date, there have been a total of 8,215 officially reported cases of COVID-19 with 139 deaths, 47 cases in active isolation, and 8,029 not in active isolation. The CAR Score is 0.7.
“This downgrade in travel risk speaks volumes of our collective work to defeat Covid-19," Lt. Gov, Josh Tenorio said.
"Our island heeded the call to action and delivered. As we embark on Operation Liberate Guam, our goal to reach herd immunity by Guam’s Liberation Day, we remain confident in our people and their ability to keep each other safe.”
