The JIC reported that the150th fatality occurred at the Guam Regional Medical City on Sep. 1. In the release, Guam Governor Lou Leon Guerrero offered her condolences to the man’s family, and advised the Guam community to “get back to our basics” in regards to COVID-19 safety.
“Although we are facing a global pandemic along with the rest of the world, the tragic passing of a member of our community can make us feel alone. Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. Check in with one another, safely, and let us get back to our basics—wear your mask, wash your hands, watch your distance. To his loved ones, [Lt. Gov. Joshua Tenorio] and I pray you find healing and comfort,” said Leon Guerrero.
