On June 4, 2022, 13 U.S. Navy Seabees and two FSM National Government Employees landed in Pohnpei and entered quarantine at the Island Palms Hotel.  The 15 individuals have all tested negative and received their COVID-19 immunizations and boosters before landing in Pohnpei.  They will undergo quarantine at Island Palms along with Island Palms staff for five days.  The entire operation has been paid for by the U.S. Government including overtime for Pohnpei State employees.  The Island Palms was fully assessed by both the Pohnpei and FSM National Task Forces and met the requirements to safely house and staff quarantine operations.  The use of Island Palms to accommodate the U.S. Navy Seabees, who will contribute greatly to our local public infrastructure, allows scheduled repatriation movements to continue without interruption or delay.
