Governor Lou Leon Guerrero has signed Executive Order 2020-25 relative to the continued suspension of the work search requirement for those receiving federal unemployment benefits, revised restrictions upon entry into Guam, and implementing measures to ensure the safe practice of certain economic activities.

EO 2020-25 suspends the work search requirement for claimants of the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) and Federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (FPUC) pending a designation of Pandemic Condition of Readiness 4 (PCOR 4). This provision supersedes EO 2020-17.

“In previous disasters, recovery efforts always followed response. Under COVID-19, our response and recovery efforts are simultaneous. As we continue to work and prepare for our recovery, we must implement policies that protect both lives and livelihoods,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero.

EO 2020-25 also temporarily authorizes the remote notarization and attestation for notary publics and continues restrictions for entry into Guam.
