Arriving Passengers from Areas with No Cases or Imported/
The purpose of this Guidance is to provide the protocols for all individuals arriving into Guam from areas with no cases or imported/sporadic cases.
Based on Executive Order No. 2021-10, all incoming travelers who have been fully vaccinated with a U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized COVID-19 vaccine, upon verification, are not subject to quarantine at a government facility. Travelers may also be eligible for exemption from quarantine at the government facility pursuant to the Department of Public Health and Social Services Guidance Memorandum 2020-11 Revision 11.
Arriving individuals (air or sea) who do not qualify for exemption as outlined in the DPHSS Guidance Memorandum 2020-11 Revision 11, but originated from a country with a transmission classification of “No (Active) Cases” or “Imported/Sporadic Cases,” as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), are not required to have a COVID-19 test and are not required to quarantine at a Government of Guam Quarantine Facility. However, such individuals must complete their 10-day quarantine period at their personal residence or rental lodging and are subject to the following requirements:
1. Must sign a Voluntary Quarantine Acknowledgement form;
2. Must provide:
a. A valid physical address;
b. A working phone number where they can be contacted; and
c. A working email address.
3. Must comply with symptom monitoring for 14 days after arrival via Sara Alert; and
4. Individual is encouraged to download the Guam COVID Alert App.
5. May only leave the quarantine location for the following purposes: purchase groceries,
exercise outdoors, pick up curbside/drive-through food services, and for medical emergencies and medical appointments;
Transmission classification is based on a process of country/territory/area self-reporting. Classifications are reviewed on a weekly basis and may be revised as new information becomes available. Differing degrees of transmission may be present within countries/territories/areas.
No (Active) Cases
No cases detected for at least 28 days (two times the maximum incubation period) in the presence of a robust surveillance system. This implies a near-zero risk of infection for the general population.
Case detected in the past 14 days are all imported, sporadic (e.g., laboratory acquired or zoonotic) or are all linked to imported/sporadic cases, and there are no clear signals of further locally acquired transmission. This implies a minimal risk of infection for the general population.
Such is needed as a public health measure to protect the health of Guam community.
This order shall enter into effect on May 15, 2021 and shall remain in effect until (1) the expiration of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency or, (2) the DPHSS Director rescinds or modifies this Order based on specific public health or other considerations.
