Fully vaccinated passengers to Guam will not be subject to quarantine at a government facility early Saturday, according to Adelup.

Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero issued an executive order Thursday afternoon, easing travel restrictions and quarantining Guam. The island remains in a pandemic state of readiness 3, and social gatherings are limited to no more than 100 people, according to the order.

At 12:01 a.m. on May 15, arriving passengers who received all required doses of the FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine – Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson – will not be quarantined, “after inspection.”

“Travelers benefiting from this exemption should self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and comply with applicable guidelines (Public Health), including screening requirements,” the order said.

Standards for guidelines and public health checks are pending and will be published soon, said Adelup spokesman Krystal Paco-San Agustin.

The CDC guidelines continue to require all air passengers arriving in the United States from a foreign country to pass a negative COVID-19 test. The test should be done no more than three days before departure. This applies regardless of the vaccination status of a passenger.
