Guam - While the plan was originally to turn Gate 11 at the Guam International Airport into an isolation area according to Public Health director James Gillan a room located near Customs & Quarantine and the baggage claim area has already been designated as the isolation room.

"If we take somebody off we'll gown them we will protect them we will walk them down the stairs into that room until we can do a full assessment and then we'll decide whether they're going will be taken to the hospital," he said.

Gillan says after looking at Gate 11 again it was determined it was not an ideal location because it would require remodeling which would have been more costly.
