Temporary Relocation of 911 Dispatch Center 
After close contact with a family member, an Emergency Medical Dispatcher has tested positive for COVID-19. To prevent further contamination, the 911 Center, along with personnel, will be temporarily relocated to the Guam Fire Department (GFD) headquarters in Agana. GFD personnel will be conducting a thorough decontamination of the facility and equipment before allowing employees to return.   

During the transition and temporary location use, there will be no loss or disruption of 911 services to the community. GFD expects to have decontamination procedures completed by 6:00 p.m., August 23.

Employees at the 911 Center have been wearing masks and following social distancing guidelines while on duty; however, they have been instructed to report any flu-like signs or symptoms to their supervisor for immediate evaluation and isolation.  

Enforcement of Executive Order 2020-28
Pursuant to the Governor of Guam’s Executive Order 2020-28, all Government of Guam parks and beaches shall be closed to all activities. Anyone caught at any public parks or beaches for any reason may be arrested and prosecuted for Criminal Trespass. 

The Guam Police Department (GPD) will work with the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) and the Office of the Attorney General to assure compliance through the duration of the “Stay-at-Home” Order. 

All residents are asked to do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19 within the community by adhering to the “Stay-at-Home” Order, refraining from any social gatherings, wearing a face mask, practicing social distancing, and practicing good hygiene like washing hands frequently.
