A fifth entry, for the Raven Pub, was added later on Tuesday. Exposure at the Raven was from 11:30pm on December 23 until 2am on December 24.

The territorial government says anyone not fully vaccinated who is affected by these exposure notices should isolate immediately and book a Covid-19 test.

Anyone affected who is fully vaccinated should monitor for symptoms, avoid gatherings and high-risk activities, and “get tested on day four or any time if symptoms develop.”

On Tuesday evening, two more flights were added to the exposure list.
