Quarantine procedures for returning residents on Guam have changed as of today, June 1.

Adelup announced last week that starting this week, any current, returning, and intended residents of Guam will be allowed to spend their mandatory 14-day quarantine at their homes or rented lodging.

That policy also extends to essential healthcare workers or people who traveled to Guam because of an emergency.

Those under this exemption must provide a valid Guam ID, mayor’s verification, or sign a declaration of residency when they arrive.

Mayor Melissa Savares told K57’s Patti Arroyo this morning that a mayor’s verification can be emailed to the resident within a day or two of calling the office to make the request.

“If they’re a resident already and had just been off-island either for medical and got stuck somewhere because of COVID, they’re an existing resident then and all they need to do is call that verification in,” Savares said.

Under Guam’s updated policies, non-residents will still be subject to quarantine at the GovGuam designated facility.
