I'm sorry I couldn't update it completely ^^;
Guam was exempted from quarantine if the vaccination rate was 75.2% and the PCR test was negative within 72 hours of arrival on July 2nd. In addition, vaccination tours from Taiwan and South Korea have begun, and although little by little, we are beginning to accept travelers from overseas. Japan is still in isolation for two weeks after returning to Japan, so I haven't traveled abroad yet, but Guam is gradually getting ready to accept it, but it's starting to get ready.
On April 30, the Governor of Guam announced that it would delay the resumption of tourism, which had been targeted for May 1, by two weeks.
The quarantine period will be shortened or shortened on May 15, and travelers who have completed vaccination will be exempted from quarantine. For unvaccinated travelers, government quarantine will continue for up to 10 days instead of the current 14 days, based on the recommendations of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In Guam, more than 64,000 people have been vaccinated so far, exceeding 62,500, which is 50% of the adult population, by May 1, the initial target.
The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) travel risk index has dropped from level 4 to level 3. The government is pushing to vaccinate 80% of the adult population by July to further reduce risk. It was also announced that the 14-day entry quarantine from May 1st could be eased. If the vaccination rate exceeds 50% as of May 1, and there is a negative proof within 72 hours, the quarantine exemption is expected to be applied.
The age of vaccinated cormorants was also reduced to 16 on March 23.
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.
