“That will of course mean we won’t need as many people in our quarantine facilities to run operations. … We can give a lot of the residents an opportunity to apply for the jobs that will be made available to run their housekeeping staff, to run their food and beverage department. Right now, we pretty much take care of that. Our absence will open up opportunities for the hotel to start to return to normal.”

Maj. General Esther J.C. Aguigui, adjutant general of the Guam Guard, in a March 22 interview with the Journal (See Front Page story). She was talking about the Guam Guard’s role in controlling intake at the islands quarantine hotels, delivering meals and other services.
