“Governor Leon Guerrero and I pray for solace for her friends and family,” said acting Gov. Josh Tenorio. “With the holidays here, we must remain persistent with our efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19 at upcoming gatherings. Continue to wear your mask around others who are not within your immediate household, keep a safe and healthy distance between yourself and others, and do not attend a social gathering if you are sick. Most importantly, get vaccinated if you are eligible and get your booster shot if it’s been six months or more. These are all important measures to emerge from this holiday season stronger.”
The latest test results continued to show Covid-19 transmissions are slowing down.
The Department of Public Health and Social Services reported 13 new cases of Covid-19 out of 1,118 tests performed on Dec. 6.
Four cases were identified through contact tracing. One case reported recent travel history and was identified in quarantine. To date, there have been a total of 19,283 officially reported cases, 267 deaths, 275 cases in active isolation, and 18,741 not in active isolation. The CAR score is 0.9.
