“The tragedy of Covid-19 is how it isolates patients in their final moments. More often than not, the ones we lost were alone, unable to embrace their families once more, and say their goodbyes,” said Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero. “Jeff, Lt. Governor Josh, and I send our deepest condolences and sympathies to his friends and families. Protect yourself and others by staying home, keeping a safe distance, and wearing your mask.”
