The governor’s physician’s advisory group added 12 new areas that are considered high-risk with respect to the COVID-19 quarantine policy.
“If you’re coming from these high-risk areas we’re giving you a five-day notice,” said Dr. Felix Cabrera who joined the governor for her COVID-19 update to the community on Wednesday.
For travelers who aren’t originating from a high-risk area they can quarantine at home or in their hotel for 14 days with the option to take a test on day 7 of quarantine if they took a test and showed negative prior to arrival. Without a pre-arrival test, the new test will have to be taken on day 10. A negative test in either case will allow for early release from quarantine though the traveler will have to continue monitoring symptoms.
For inbound travelers who are flying into Guam from a high-risk area, they can quarantine at home or hotel if they took a COVID-19 PCR test 72 hours prior to arrival and it shows negative. Those without a pre-travel test would have to quarantine at a government facility, though they too can take a test again for early release from quarantine.
