Guam rules eased to allow bigger crowds at restaurants, public events

Restaurants and bars will be allowed to accommodate more diners and patrons, while churches and sports events will be permitted to hold bigger crowds beginning 8 a.m. Friday, April 16.

Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero today signed an executive order relaxing some Covid-19 related restrictions, raising the occupancy limit for dining and drinking establishments from 50 percent to 75 percent capacity.

Places of worship will also be permitted to increase occupancy to 75 percent of occupancy load.

Current safety measures such as social distancing and wearing of face masks will remain in place, however.

Guam remains under Pandemic Condition of Readiness 3. The governor amended restrictions as the island prepares for the anticipated reopening of tourism on May 1.
