One Confirmed COVID-19 Case Arrives on Inbound Honolulu Flight
On Wednesday, August 12, 2020, the Guam International Airport Authority (GIAA) received notice from the Department of Defense (DoD) that a service member arriving on a civilian flight from Honolulu this evening had tested positive for COVID-19.
The confirmed case will be reflected in Guam’s overall COVID-19 case count once the DPHSS Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity Program and Office of Epidemiology and Research has been officially notified.
Out of an abundance of caution, Governor Lou Leon Guerrero, in consultation with DPHSS, has required that all ninety-two (92) passengers on the affected flight be quarantined at a Government of Guam or DoD designated facility until further notice. The same quarantine requirement will apply to passengers in possession of a negative COVID-19 test result prior to arrival.
Testing for COVID-19 of all passengers from the affected Honolulu flight will be scheduled.
