Starting Monday (February 22nd) this week, Guam's PCOR3 pandemic index has dropped by one, retail stores and other stores have increased capacity to 75%, and all business services have capacity up to 50%. Business was permitted at. The regulations for outdoor meetings have been relaxed to 50 people or less (up to 25 people per group).
In the PCR test on the 22nd, there were no positives and the number of infected people decreased sharply.
From today (24th), the bar will be open for business.
Vaccination of the vaccine even if the July 70% of islanders to pre-vaccination in prospect, is the direction to suppress the virus spreading.
Despite these bright topics, the tourism industry remains in a difficult situation.
JAL will be suspended for the whole of May. The current two-week quarantine remains the same. The need for PCR testing within 72 hours is still uncertain.
Happy Valentine ♡
From February 15th tomorrow, Guam will drop its alert level to PCOR3.
The number of vaccinated people exceeds 50,000, and one-third of the islands are vaccinated.
Because of Valentine's Day today, each hotel and restaurant is promoting with special menus. I participated in the Valentine's Day Special Jungle River Cruise yesterday.
This is my first jungle river cruise in Guam for over 20 years.
Depart from the mouth of the Talofofo River and proceed upstream. If you go through the jungle, you can see the old Chamorro culture, Latte Stone, etc. After about 45 minutes of boat tour, you will walk in the natural park and the Chamorro dancers will welcome you with a dance and you can enjoy the Chamorro culture with your body.
The Valentine special dinner was very delicious with chicken keraguen, red rice, dry beef and mannock suni!
I went to the morning market, which is held every weekend! !!
It was closed due to lockdown at one time, but the regulations have been relaxed and there are few shops, but shops for vegetables, fish, meals, etc. are open. As soon as you enter the entrance of the morning market, the good smell of BBQ will arouse your appetite.
There were no tourists and it was a little sparse, but it was still more crowded with locals than I expected.
I procured breakfast immediately and had Aroscardo (porridge) Tahoe (tofu dessert). This is $ 6.50 cheaper! delicious! It's going to be a habit for a while (laughs)
In February, Guam has become quite calm. Vaccination was possible for people over 60 years old, but it was reduced to 55 years old, and a considerable number of people have received it, and the congestion has calmed down a little.
From February 5th, the number of restaurants has been increased to 50%. Furthermore, the movie theater, which had been closed for a long time, has finally opened. I enjoyed the weekend movies, although there was a 50% tie.
Tumon beach in the morning. There are many locals walking on Tumon Beach early in the morning. Recently, there are many people who enjoy SUP probably because the regulations have become loose. When you see yoga poses on the board, you'll want to do it a little (laughs) Tumon Beach is usually crowded with tourists, but there aren't many people in Corona. I want you to come back to this beach as soon as possible.
From January 18th, Guam's PCOR2 (risk level) has dropped.
Along with that, the restaurant eat-in has been raised to 50%, and the school will start on the 19th. Government relations and companies can now be opened. When I ran the car yesterday evening, it wasn't a traffic jam, but it was a good amount of cars. All you have to do is wait for the tourists to resume!
Skinner Plaza, located opposite Chamorro Village in the Agania district, is popular with locals for its flashy Christmas illuminations every year, but this year it's a corona disaster, so it's a little restrained. Still, the cute planting art welcomes you. I stopped the car and took a picture.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It's been 22 years since I came to Guam, but for the first time I took a break from New Year and spent a relaxing time at home.
This year's countdown has quietly started with no fireworks.
I pray that the corona wreck will calm down and the tourists will return and return to normal soon.
However, in order to enjoy the New Year for the first time in more than 20 years, I am enjoying the New Year by ordering the New Year at Onward Hotel Sagano Restaurant this year.
Thank you for your continued support this year.
How are you all doing Christmas?
According to the government announcement, if the in-dining at the restaurant is 25%, it is OK.
The food court eat area has also been opened at Micronesia Mall.
3 out of 4 tables are blocked as shown in the picture, but this is still a significant improvement.
I sincerely hope that the regulations will be relaxed and the acceptance of tourists will begin.
We hope you all have a good year.
There are 10 days left to leave this year. Normally, the city should be crowded with Christmas, but this year it is quiet. As the number of facilities such as churches increased from 25% to 50% the other day, it seems that the number of people in each church has increased a little. There is no Tumon Christmas illuminations this year, but there is only one illumination decoration inside the Guam Memorial Hospital facility.
Seeing this kind of thing makes me feel a little better (laughs)
Update information was announced by the Guam government on December 14th. Regulations have been relaxed a bit, and social gathering has increased from 5 to 10 people. The restaurant will continue to be in-store, but outdoor dining is limited to 10 people. Stores such as shopping malls and supermarkets have been raised from 25% to 50%.
In addition, we received 3,900 vaccines from Pfizer yesterday, and vaccination will start on Thursday, 17th.
In December, the number of positives announced by the government decreased, and recently it has dropped to around 20.
Each option vendor is also starting to sell online tours, etc., albeit little by little. This Saturday, 12th, you can join Lamb Lam Tour's online tour for free! !!

I can't see the future as usual.
The lockdown for the whole of November was announced, and the number of positive people is flat and it is difficult to see the future, but the restaurant is limited to terrace seats, but it is possible to eat and drink.
I went to the most popular PROA in Guam. There are 6 tables on the terrace with a space. After checking in, you will be guided to the table, scan the QR code and order the menu from your mobile phone. Eating out after a long time was very fun and delicious as it helped to relieve stress! !!
Guam, where the number of positive patients does not decrease at all. Although it is PCOR1, it has been gradually relaxed. Micronesia Mall has also opened and you can see people enjoying shopping. Japan Airlines announced the cancellation by the end of November, and each travel agency also announced the cancellation of the tour sales by the end of November. We look forward to the return of tourists as soon as possible.
