Former First Lady Arlin Tomeing was among 43 people who arrived in the RMI this week Tuesday to begin a two-week quarantine. Seven people deplaned at Majuro for isolation at the Arrak Quarantine Facility, while 36 are quarantining at the US Army Garrison — Kwajalein Atoll.
Deputy Chief Secretary Abacca Anjain-Maddison said Wednesday in a V7AB radio broadcast that all 43 tested negative for Covid on arrival in RMI.
This group, which is fully vaccinated, is the second group to arrive in RMI after a reduced quarantine period of seven days in Hawaii. Prior to September, the RMI required a 14-day quarantine in both Hawaii and RMI.
