The AAFB North Gate will be open 24 hours and individuals entering the base will be required to undergo COVID-19 medical screening prior to entry.

The advisory said that the base is taking all the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and that the safety and well being of everyone on Guam is of utmost importance.
