(Friday, February 16, 2024; Dededo, Guam) Guam Regional Medical City will discontinue its mask mandate and will return to its regular visitation guidelines effective Saturday, February 17, 2024.

GRMC advises that individuals with symptoms such as cough, runny nose, shortness of breath, fever, congestion, or sore throat should avoid non-essential visitation due to the increased potential of spreading respiratory illnesses to others.

Disposable masks will be available upon entry into the hospital.
