ACTING Governor Josh Tenorio announced that the island of Guam has officially reached herd immunity by vaccinatin­g 80% of its adult population. Heralded from Guam’s major vaccinatio­n center at the University of Guam Fieldhouse, Tenorio stated that restrictio­ns on social gatherings, social distancing and operations by appointmen­t only basis were lifted beginning at July 30, 2021. Out of an abundance of caution, the mask mandate will remain in place to ensure the protection of the island.

“With “Operation Liber8 Guam” completed, Guam is now one of the safest places in the world to visit. The collaborat­ion of our medical community, military, and island constituen­ts has helped us to reach our goal, and Guam is ready to welcome back our visitors,” said GVB President & CEO Carl T.C. Gutierrez. “In celebratio­n, GVB has arranged for two trolleys to provide free shuttle service to all of our visitors and residents in Tumon through August 30.”
