As of 12pm Friday, all incoming travelers to Guam will be put into GovGuam quarantine.
The Governor told K57’s Patti Arroyo this morning, that regardless of where the traveler is coming in from, high-risk or low-risk areas, every person that lands at the Guam International Airport will be quarantined in one of three government-operated hotels.
This will effect every inbound flight to the GIAA for the next week.
“Every person that is coming in now is going to be quarantined in the government facility…no home quarantine for the next week,” said the Governor.
Having a negative PCR test result on hand will not get any passenger out the government quarantine.
“We got infected from outside travelers. People coming back from high hot spots areas: Texas, Nevada, California and so forth, and we allowed them to self-quarantine, and they were not self-quarantining,” said the Governor.
“60 of the positive cases so far, that we have caught, are from the government quarantine.”
This decision will affect the incoming Narita (UA197) flight arriving at 9:55pm Friday and Honolulu flight UA201 arriving at 8:20pm, according to Rolenda Faasuamalie, the Guam International Airport Spokeswoman, as well as all future inbound flights for the next week.
