Ban on sea voyages and flights between two Samoas remains in effect

Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — Gov. Lolo Matalasi Moliga has not lifted the ban on cargo voyages of the Samoa government-owned MV Lady Naomi between the two Samoas, while the suspension of flights remains in effect, according to ASG Coronavirus Task Force chairman Iulogologo Joseph Pereira.

When Samoa reported its first suspected COVID-19 case two weeks ago, the governor ordered the immediate suspension of all flights to and from Samoa, along with the weekly sail of the MV Lady Naomi — that usually arrives and departs Thursdays. And the order remains in effect until further notice.

The governor’s COVID-19 Eleventh Amended Declaration, effective for 34-days - from Dec. 1, 2020 to Jan. 3, 2021 — shows inter Samoa flights remain suspended but there was no mention of voyages from Samoa.

“The Governor has not lifted the ban on flights to and from Samoa including the Lady Naomi voyages,” was the response from Iulogologo, when asked if the ban is lifted for Lady Naomi voyages, since it’s not included in provision of the 11th Amended declaration.
