Cabrera said the government hopes to implement new travel requirements in two weeks. For those fully vaccinated, with an immunization card and separate record of vaccination from a health authority or private provider, no quarantine would be required. The Sara Alert system and Guam Covid App would still be used.

“May 1st, we will probably change our quarantine protocols. It will be more likely that we would require a negative PCR test and then they can go home or go about with their business but they would be required to on the Sara alert and also COVID alert,” the governor said.
Arriving passengers would still be required to be on Sara Alert and Guam COVID Alert apps. And the governor says they are still discussing whether the easing will also apply to those arriving from hot spot countries such as the philippines where cases have been spiking.
