Home­ward bound A. Samoans ex­empt from Apia quar­an­tine


Pago Pago: Amer­i­can Samoan res­i­dents trav­el­ling through Samoa from Fiji on a repa­tri­a­tion flight will not be quar­an­tined in Apia, but must de­part for the ter­ri­tory as soon as pos­si­ble. The Samoa govern­ment amended State of Emer­gency or­ders to say the trav­ellers were not sub­ject to quar­an­tine but still had to re­cieve med­i­cal clear­ance.

The trav­ellers are able to fly from Fiji as part of a char­tered flight or­gan­ised by a com­pany who also has work­ers stranded in Apia. Pas­sen­gers bound for Amer­i­can Samoa in­clude stu­dents study­ing in Fiji and re­turn­ing doc­tors.
