TINIAN Mayor Edwin Aldan is asking community members to be kind and civil with one another amid the worsening Covid-19 crisis.

“I am saddened and disappointed to receive reports that members of our community associated with a faith-based group on Tinian are being attacked on social media and within our community,” he said, referring to one of the Covid-19 patients who traveled from Saipan to Tinian.

He said the virus does not distinguish between nationality, race or religion, and can affect anyone.

Aldan noted that the patient traveled to Tinian prior to the first confirmed cases on Guam and the CNMI government shutdown.

The patient was on Tinian on March 13 when the municipal government was celebrating Women’s Day at the Fiesta Grounds.

“We are all guilty of not taking this pandemic seriously,” the mayor said in a press statement.

As of Wednesday, there were no confirmed Covid-19 cases on Tinian, but contact tracing was still being conducted on the person who traveled to the island on March 13 and returned to Saipan on March 14.

Aldan said the governor’s Covid-19 Task Force is also monitoring those on Tinian who have had contact with the infected individual.

“They are following strict quarantine measures and keep in constant contact with the Tinian Health Center,” he said.
