    US-CDC changes covid-19 travel notice for American Samoa
    Sat, 08/29/2020 - 2:34pm

    Samoa News staff
    Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has changed the COVID-19 travel risk notice for America Samoa compared to the federal agency’s notice issued Aug. 6th in which CDC says that “COVID-19 risk in American Samoa is high”.

    As of yesterday, the CDC listed American Samoa and 20 other countries with a new travel health notice, saying that, “COVID-19 Risk is Very Low”. No explanation was given as to why the change for American Samoa, which is the only US jurisdiction — state or territory — without a confirmed case.
