Governor: No difference in quarantine procedures for military and civilians


Governor Lou Leon Guerrero says there is no difference in the quarantine procedures for arriving members of the military and civilians.

In response to comments made last week by Attorney General Leevin Camacho, the governor said the military has adopted GovGuam’s quarantine procedures.

Camacho had expressed concern about what he felt were more liberal quarantine standards adopted by the military for personnel arriving at Andersen AFB and Naval Base Guam.

Camacho said quarantining standards should be equalized on both sides of the fence.

The Governor disagreed.

“I think it’s a matter of update and more information that the attorney general needs to have. Their quarantine, the military’s quarantine, is basically following our quarantine protocol. In fact, when they do the quarantine, they have used our protocol and they have used our guidelines,” the governor said.

The Attorney General also said that he is continuing to look into the National Guard unit that violated their restricted movement orders while staying at the Reef Hotel. Members of that unit went to 30 different businesses on island and 35 of them later tested positive for COVID-19.

The AG said he wants to see the documents the service members signed when they left Andersen to complete their “Restriction of Movement” at the Guam Reef Hotel.

The governor has previously said that no new cases of COVID-19 in the civilian community have been linked to any of the 35 airmen who tested positive for the disease.
