Governor Lou Leon Guerrero said the May 15 reopening of Guam tourism is still a go and she intends to push through with it, with the right protocols in place.

“I’m still targeting for May 15 and I’m telling my team to modify those travel protocols and they have to be implemented right. We’re rushing to get the process going,” Leon Guerrero said during a talk with reporters in Adelup.

She added: “I am very urgent about this because we have to start saying and messaging our travelers that we want to make it as convenient as possible for them but also protect our communities. And we’re not opening with no restrictions at all because I don’t want to have to go back again to PCOR-1 because we weren’t very methodical, scientific, and calculating.”

The governor was also asked whether she already has any candidates for Chamorro Land Trust Commission director and what job former CLTC director Jack Hattig III now has.

She answered that she has someone in mind for the CLTC post although she preferred not to name the person for now.

As for Hattig, the governor said he’s going to be helping in a variety of projects that are coming up as the administration starts to revitalize the economy.

“He’s going to be like my project manager,” the governor said.
