On Monday, May 10, 2021, Governor Oliver signed Constitutional Emergency Order (CEO) 20-06.  The CEO continues Pohnpei’s state of emergency in response to the continuous and imminent threat of COVID-19.  The CEO reactivates the Pohnpei COVID-19 Emergency Task Force, places Pohnpei’s COVID readiness condition based on the already established COVID-19 contingency response plan, and sets penalties for any violation of the provisions of the CEO at not less than $1,000 or imprisonment for not less than one year, or both such fine and imprisonment. 

All prior policies, guidelines, and procedures established with respect to COVID-19 since the expiration of Constitutional Emergency Order No. 20-05 remain the same including, but not limited to, international and interstate travel.  The new CEO unless revoked or amended sooner will be effective for 30 days from May 11, 2021.
