The Customs and Quarantine Agency (CQA) has been notified that five employees have tested positive for COVID-19. The employees were assigned to the Port Authority of Guam (PAG) Customs field office.

The Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) is conducting contact tracing and protocols were put in place for the isolation and quarantine of all those assigned to this office.

The office has since been sanitized and disinfected. Officers and administrative support staff have been temporarily reassigned from other sections to ensure continued operations at the port.
