Guam's COVID Area Risk (CAR) Score now is 4.2. That is below the target score of 5.0 that Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero says she wants to see sustained for a period of time before releasing certain COVID-19 restrictions.


Dr. Felix Cabrera, who is a member of the governor's physicians advisory group, said he recommends two weeks of scores at or below 5.0 before the governor releases restrictions on the island.


​The CAR Score accounts for the incidence of new cases, how well current testing identifies these cases, and the rate of spread.
