Since June 21st of this year, there have been approximately 31 deaths related to the coronavirus, about 6,353 individuals in American Samoa who have contracted the virus, and 6,251 individuals have recovered from the coronavirus.
Acting Governor, Talauega Ale, is enforcing all of American Samoa to keep using their masks in enclosed settings and to remain a 6-feet distance from each other to lessen the possibilities of contracting the coronavirus.
This Declaration of the ongoing outbreak will not affect any village councils to enact regulations imposing curfews or restricting public gatherings. It is enforced that whoever violates any of the requirements will be punished by up to 12 months in jail or pay a fine of $1,000.

Ale; “This Declaration will be effective June 27, 2022, and supersedes the Declaration dated May 27, 2022, and the amendments to that Declaration. It will be in effect for thirty (30) dates and expires on July 27, 2022. Exclusive authority for rendering all final decisions pertaining to the implementation of all prescribed mandates of this Emergency Declaration is vested in
the Governor of the Territory of American Samoa and the GAR. Dated: June 24, 2022”
