The management at the A.B. Won Pat International Airport Authority, Guam (GIAA) was notified of another positive COVID-19 case by one (1) employee.
“Although the community spread of the COVID-19 virus continues to have an impact on our island, the GIAA continues its due diligence in mandating proper social distancing, wearing a face mask, and providing every opportunity to disinfect hands throughout the terminal building to ensure the traveling public is kept safe,” stated John “JQ” Quinata, GIAA Executive Manager. “Our most recent notification of a positive case of COVID-19 amongst our employees does not appear to be related to any previously reported cases.”
The airport continues to advise the general public that access to the airport terminal is restricted to GIAA-authorized employees, those providing GIAA-approved essential services, and ticketed passengers. Therefore, well-wishers of departing passengers are strongly encouraged to express their farewell wishes to departing passengers prior to arriving at the airport terminal, as congregation at the curbside is highly discouraged.
GIAA continues to operate a 100% thermal screening program upon entry into designated entry points, the required use of face masks/coverings, and the mandating of social distancing. All airport patrons are encouraged to practice good hygiene with frequent hand washing with reminder signage throughout the terminal.
Executive Manager Quinata concluded, “We continue to provide the support needed to our employees that have tested positive for COVID-19 and we hope for their swift recovery. At the same time, we continue to remind everyone that enters the terminal building that the safety and security of the traveling public is of utmost importance and the airport continues to encourage and enforce these safe practices.”
