Some COVID-19 restrictions ease today but not Hawaii-Pago travel

Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — Gov. Lolo Matalasi Moliga will be extending for another 30-days his current COVID-19 emergency declaration, set to expire today, June 30th, but will also ease more restrictions, such as opening of schools and lifting the limitation of people in public gathering, but still requiring the enforcement of social distancing and wearing face masks.

However, the governor made very clear — when making the announcement at Sunday’s ASG coronavirus task force meeting — that all flights between Honolulu and Pago Pago will remain closed, reiterating his concerns of the spike of COVID-19 cases in Hawaii and the US mainland.

As for the borders of the two Samoas, flights will be reviewed while the Samoa government’s Samoa Shipping Corporation, which manages and operates Samoa owned vessels, announced Monday in Apia that a weekly “cargo only” service will start July 2nd between Apia and Pago Pago.


As of 12 noon Sunday, June 28th, Hawaii state health authorities reported 27 new cases bringing the state’s total to 899, while deaths are at 18, according to the state’s online public records.
