ASAN, Guam (Jan. 8, 2021) – Exercise Sea Dragon 2021, an annual multinational exercise is slated to host military participants from Australia, Canada, India, Japan, and deployed U.S. Navy aircraft squadrons in the vicinity of Guam. All exercise participants are carefully adhering to a number of COVID-19 mitigation measures to protect Guam’s civilian and military communities.
Prior to arrival in Guam, all participants are required to enter a 14-day restriction of movement sequester (ROM-S) in their home country in order to insulate and protect themselves from potential infection within their country. Prior to exiting ROM-S and at most 72 hours before their travel to Guam, participants must receive a negative COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test result before traveling.
Service members arriving in Guam in support of Sea Dragon 2021 are scheduled to temporarily reside in off-base hotels for the duration of the exercise.
Upon arrival, exercise participants will be placed into a Supplemental ROM status for 14 additional days. This Supplemental ROM will only allow participants to travel to and from their on-base workplace and their off-base lodging, as well as restricted movements once on base.
Off-base activities are prohibited for all exercise participants to further prevent the spread of COVID-19. This restriction will be strictly enforced and is for the health and safety of both the local community as well as the service members involved in the exercise.
All Government of Guam Pandemic Condition of Readiness and Executive Order guidelines and military public health orders apply and any service member suspected to be in violation will be investigated and held accountable, if appropriate.
