COVID-19 Low-Risk areas are determined by a calculated COVID-19 Area Risk (CAR) Score, which primarily assesses an area’s recently calculated Case Doubling Time, Test Positivity Rate and New Cases Per 100,000 population.

Low Risk Areas

Incoming travelers whose point of origin is from a low-risk area and whose stay on Guam is less than 5 nights will not be subject to quarantine. Incoming travelers who will be staying on Guam for more than 5 nights will be required to take a COVID-19 test on the fifth day of their stay, unless they show proof of a negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test within 5 days of their arrival on Guam.

All Other Areas

Incoming travelers whose point of origin is not from a low-risk area and who are unable to show proof of a negative PCR test within 5 days of their arrival to Guam will be required to quarantine at a government facility for 14 days. Those who can show proof of a negative PCR test that was administered within 5 days of their arrival to Guam can proceed to home/self quarantine for 14 days. Individuals under either form of quarantine will be given the option to test out on day 7, however, priority will be given to those in government quarantine. COVID-19 tests are subject to availability.

Symptom Monitoring

ALL incoming travelers, whether coming from a low-risk area or not, are subject to symptom monitoring by DPHSS for the duration of their stay, or 14 days, whichever is greater.
