The Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) has issued an updated list of low-risk areas, which can be found at dphss.guam.gov.
Japan, Guam’s major tourism market, is still not included as COVID-19 continues to flare up in that country.
Also dropped were U.S. states Connecticut, New Hampshire, and New Jersey.
Low-Risk Areas include:
• New York
• American Samoa
• Marshall Islands
• New Zealand
• South Korea
• United Kingdom
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.
