The Joint Information Center reported 62 new Covid-19 positive cases out of 434 samples tested on Wednesday, 26 of which were identified through contact tracing. One case reported recent travel from the U.S. and was identified in quarantine.

To date, there have been a total of 2,550 officially reported cases of Covid-19 with 49 deaths, 635 cases in active isolation, and 1,866 not in active isolation. Of those cases, 2,277 are classified as civilians and 273 are military service members.

As the community continues to learn how to adapt to life with Covid-19, Sen. Therese Terlaje, the oversight chair on health, continues to monitor progress with the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) to get a clearer picture of the trajectory of the reopening of Guam businesses, tourism as well as restoring some semblance of normalcy for residents.
