Novel Coronavirus

Håfa Adai (Hello) from the Guam Visitors Bureau,

Our island of Guam is a popular destination in the Pacific known for its people, culture and renowned Håfa Adai Spirit. At the heart of our culture is the spirit of community and the care of our families as well as our neighbors, near and far.

As this global health crisis continues to evolve, we are dedicated to doing our part in the worldwide effort against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As many of our brothers and sisters around the globe, our top priority is focusing on the well-being of our local community and guests.

The Government of Guam has strengthened its preventative measures to protect the health and safety of our island. In the weeks ahead, we will continue to provide the latest visitor-industry related information to help guide our guests and industry partners.

Although we are a small island, we stand together in the spirit of Håfa Adai with you and your families during these unprecedented times.

Si Yu’os Ma’åse (Thank you)  for helping us to make Guam a better place to live, work and visit.
