Guam is also nearing the 2-year mark of Governor Leon Guerrero’s Executive Order 2020-05, which was the start of Guam’s first major shutdown. EO 2020-05 prohibited all public gatherings or congregations for the purposes of Public entertainment, recreation, food and beverage service, and other similar activities.
