“I ask the people of Guam to join Jeff, Lt. Gov. Josh, and I as we mourn the passing of the 61st soul to COVID-19. To his family and friends, please accept our heartfelt condolences and sympathies,” said Guam Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero. “With each announcement, my heart gets heavier with emotion. We must remember that our actions not only affect us, but those around us. Continue to practice the necessary precautions to keep our island community safe from this terrible virus.”
