PAGO PAGO (RNZ Pacific/Pacnews) — The governor of American Samoa says in August special skilled and technical workers will be brought into the territory.

Lolo Matalasi Moliga said the government has about $200 million worth of projects underway or about to start and there is a shortage of labor.

He said from Aug. 1 to 17 necessary personnel will be allowed in despite border restrictions associated with Covid-prevention.

The governor said such workers will also include medical personnel.

Earlier the governor instructed that new buildings constructed behind the Tafuna Health Center should be ready for use by August.

Meanwhile repatriation flights from Samoa were to end on July 31.

As of last week a total of 239 people had been brought back from Apia on flights operated by Samoa Airways and Talofa Airways.

The number of those who returned to Samoa from the territory was 170.
