THE governor’s Covid-19 Task Force wants to designate the Pacific Islands Club as another quarantine site on Saipan, PIC general manager Gloria Cavanagh said.

“The CNMI government is in need of another quarantine area and they have picked us, but nothing has been finalized yet,” she said in a phone interview.

PIC has 230 rooms.

Earlier, Covid-19 Task Force chairman Warren Villagomez said they will designate additional hotel facilities as quarantine areas if more people need to be isolated.

Aside from PIC, he said they are also considering the former Mariana Resort.

On Sunday, the task force and CHCC used the former Mariana Resort as a site for the health screening of 476 individuals.

Those who were identified as persons under investigation were brought to the Kanoa Resort to undergo quarantine.

Also quarantined at the hotel are newly arrived passengers from Guam.

No one has been quarantined yet at Mariana Resort.

As of April 1, the CNMI had six positive cases of Covid-19. These included a 70-year-old man who passed away on Monday at Kanoa Resort.

Dr. Elizabeth Kohnen, CHCC Family Care Clinic medical director, said the individuals at Kanoa Resort are separated on various floors while they are on quarantine.
