Governor Lou Leon Guerrero has signed an executive order further easing quarantine restrictions on Guam.

Starting at 12:01 am, July 4, the governor said all passengers who have presented a PCR negative test 72 hours before arrival to Guam, will be exempt from quarantine.

This is in addition to the current policy that enables all vaccinated travelers to enter Guam without quarantine.

As of today, the governor said 75% of Guam’s adult population have already been vaccinated and that’s over 90,000 adults.

“We have almost achieved our mission to vaccinate 80% of our adult population, which will mean the lifting of more local restrictions. Those announcements will be presented as we get closer to that goal,” Leon Guerrero said in a Facebook address.

She added: “For now, I want to congratulate all of you for your continued efforts to protect yourself, one another, our community, from this deadly virus, as we continue to heal from COVID-19. I am so proud of you for answering our calls to roll up your sleeves and get your shot because vaccines are safe and effective at preventing serious illness, hospitalization, and even deaths. Because so many of you have received the protection of the COVID-19 vaccine, I am confident in our ability to safely lift additional quarantine restrictions.”
