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 will be lifted beginning at 12:01 AM on 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, beginning tomorrow, GVB has arranged for two trolleys to provide free shuttle service to all of our visitors and residents in Tumon through August 30.”
