Posted on Aug 30 2021


A total of four incoming travelers tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend, bringing the CNMI’s total to 236.

Last Friday, the Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. announced that two incoming travelers have been confirmed positive for COVID-19. The individuals were identified by travel screening and confirmed through fifth-day testing on Aug. 26 and arrival testing on Aug. 27, respectively. On Aug. 28, CHCC announced that two more incoming travelers were confirmed positive for COVID-19. The individuals were identified by travel screening and confirmed through arrival testing on Aug. 27.

In both announcements, CHCC reported that the individuals have been quarantined and are being monitored, and that CHCC’s Communicable Disease Investigation/ Inspection team has already initiated contact tracing for those in most immediate contact with the four individuals.

In related news, the COVID-19 vaccination campaign Road to 80 announced its final batch of winners last Saturday at the Taste of the Marianas main stage. Up for grabs on Saturday was thousands of dollars in cash prizes, a 17-foot Yamaha boat, and a 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport.

Streamed live on Facebook and Instagram, Road to 80 program manager and host Brad Ruszala spun virtual wheels in real-time to select Saturday’s big winners. After a winner was determined, Ruszala called the winners and spoke on the phone with the winners live and onstage. Occasionally joining Ruszala onstage last Saturday were CHCC chief executive officer Esther Muña, Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force chair Warren Villagomez, as well as executives of Joeten Group of Companies, TanHoldings Corp., and Bridge Capital.

Raffle winners who were present at Taste last Saturday to claim their prizes were $2,500 winner Trixia Gabrielle Litulumar; $7,500 mini grand prize winner Janet Sacramento; and the winner of the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport. Saipan Tribune was unable to obtain the name of the winner of the car as of press time Sunday.

Saturday’s other winners were Saipan resident Jacqueline Teregeyo, who won the $5,000 cash mini grand prize, Tinian resident and $15,000 grand prize winner Pedro Casisi, and Saipan resident and winner of the 17-foot Yamaha boat Amir Hossein. Ruszala said Saturday that he and the team will get the prizes to these winners soon.
