Four travelers test positive

Posted on Oct 11 2021


Four incoming travelers have tested positive, bringing the CNMI’s total to 277. In Guam, the Joint Information Center announced last Friday the island’s two most recent COVID-19-related deaths, bringing Guam’s total to 212.

The Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. said Friday that the four new cases were identified by travel screening and confirmed positive through fifth-day and arrival testing on Oct. 7. The individuals have been quarantined and are being actively monitored, and CHCC’s contact tracing team has already reached out to those in most immediate contact with the four travelers. CHCC also reported that there are currently no active COVID-19-related hospitalizations in the CNMI.

The JIC in Guam reported the island’s 211th and 212th COVID-19-related deaths: an unvaccinated 73-year-old female with underlying health conditions and a 39-year-old fully vaccinated male with underlying health conditions.
