CDC lowers travel alert for Guam to level 2; raises CNMI's risk from level 1 to 2

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention has downgraded the travel warning for Guam from level 3 to 2, but it has raised the risk advisory level for the CNMI from 1 to 2.

Level 2, which means the risk is moderate, advises against nonessential travels. Travelers are advised to be fully vaccinated prior to flying to a level 2 destination.

“We welcome the latest designation from the CDC, which recognizes the efforts by our people to change the course of our battle with this global pandemic. This downgrade communicates to the nation—and the rest of the world—that we are taking charge and taking control of the virus," Guam Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero said. "More importantly, it paves the way for reopening Guam and re-energizing not just tourism, but our economy.”
