Advisory for future travelers into Yap.

The FSM National Government has already declared the borders open with certain guidelines for its residents to follow (posted last week). With this Public Alert, Yap State is now following the Healthy Border Act which includes the temporary suspension of requiring incoming passengers to have a negative result of a PCR test and with the exception of children aged 6 months to 4 years old, all other eligible age groups must be vaccinated and/or boosted.

Tomorrow students going to school using the same bus service will also be exposed and so seeing higher numbers of COVID-19 positive surge this week is to be expected.

Yap TTT site testing today identified 15 new COVID-19 positive cases including an unvaccinated 8 month old baby. The numbers will continue to grow in the coming week.

We will most likely start entering high COVID-19 surge especially with all government workers going back to work on Monday August 22 and school students back to school on Tuesday August 23. That is to be expected.

Everyone should continue to mask, distance and wash your hands regularly and remain calm and continue your daily activities in safety.

If you are not vaccinated or up to date on your COVID-19 vaccine shots, please vaccinate . Tomorrow the Gagil CHC will be open from 10.30am to 5.30pm offering COVID-19 vaccines for children 6 months old to 4 years and 5 years and up to adults.

If you feel sick, with any COVID-19 symptoms, do not wait, go straight away to a TTT site and get your free COVID-19 test and further health advice. TTT sites open tomorrow from 10am to 3pm.
