The Archdiocese of Agaña announces that five additional Catholic school students have tested positive for Covid-19 recently.

Bishop Baumgartner Memorial School was notified of three positive cases late yesterday. Saint Anthony Catholic School and Mercy Heights Mercy Heights Catholic Nursery & Kindergarten each learned of one positive case today. The number of Catholic school students testing positive for the virus is now 35.

All three schools suspended in-person learning for its students in grades Pre-K to Kindergarten and up last Monday in accordance with the recent Executive Order and are implementing remote learning this week.

School administrators have implemented their Covid-19 protocols and are working closely with the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) and the Archdiocese of Agaña’s Covid-19 Liaison on contact tracing. They have notified the parents of students who may have had exposure and are receiving guidance regarding testing by DPHSS.
