A sailor from the USS Theodore Roosevelt endangered an entire island after he broke quarantine protocol while billeted in a Guam hotel.
Joint Region Marianas Commander Rear Adm. John Menoni made the announcement not long after several crewmembers were put into the hotel, a process that was expedited following the information leaking scandal involving the ship’s former commander.
“There was a break of a quarantine in one of the hotels. That sailor, as I have committed to the governor and the community of Guam, that sailor was pulled then from the hotel,” he said.
The sailor was taken back to Naval Base Guam and will face an investigation.
Sailors who have tested negative and who were asymptomatic were placed in hotels.
“I’m not going to get into positives or negatives because we could go down a road … go around and around about the data. And I don’t have that in front of me, so I cannot really answer that question accurately,” Menoni said.
According to Guam’s Pacific Daily News, military leadership are maintaining a presence in the hotels to ensure sailors don’t try to leave.
