The Road to Recovery
Greetings!

Governor Lou Leon Guerrero has released PCOR2 (condition of readiness level: moderate restrictions ) guidelines which outlines a proposed phased in approach to opening Guam based on the following criteria:

  • Medical Data and Public Health Preparedness
  • Mitigation of Risk Resurgence
  • Prevention in Overwhelming the Health Care System
  • Implementation of Familiar Condition of Readiness Levels

The Guam Recovery Panel of Advisors has adopted a similar classification to our typhoon readiness for its phase classifications. Guam is in PCOR1 now. Governor Leon Guerrero will advise the exact date for movement into PCOR2 during her press conference today. The Governor and her team will be live today at 1:00 pm on various news feeds and social media live streams. We encourage you to view and listen with us to hear first hand about the recovery plan.

Please download the presentation as it details gradual lifting of restrictions for government entities, businesses and non-government organizations as our island moves toward the road to recovery. All entities are required to adhere to the guidelines as noted in the presentation.

If there are questions or concerns, please feel free to send your comments and feedback to us.

Onward Together,

Catherine Castro

SBA’s Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Program
The federal government's goal is to award at least five percent of all federal contracting dollars to women-owned small businesses each year.

In summer 2020, the certification process for Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSBs) and Economically Disadvantaged WOSBs (EDWOSBs) will change as put forth by Congress in the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

The SBA expects that the regulations enacting the statutory requirement will be published on June 30, 2020, and will be effective 30 days later. READ MORE
