TWENTY-THREE individuals ended their 14-day mandatory quarantine and were released Monday from the Pacific Islands Club, the governor’s Covid-19 Task Force Chairman Warren Villagomez said.


Two other individuals will be released Tuesday.
These 25 individuals are returning residents who arrived on Saipan on March 22 and were placed under quarantine at Kanoa Resort and were later transferred to PIC.
Villagomez said all of them are in good health condition and none developed any symptoms. “They are being monitored daily by Dr. John Tudela’s team and a CHCC surveillance team,” he added.
Besides a medical team with the Commonwealth Healthcare Corp., Villagomez said staff members from the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs, the Department of Public Safety and the Department Fire, Emergency and Medical Services are always at the quarantine sites to ensure everyone’s safety.
“When they are released, all people who have been quarantined will now be part of the text-based illness management monitoring system,” Villagomez said, adding that the CHCC surveillance team will continue to communicate with these individuals to monitor their health.
In a separate statement on Monday, the governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and CHCC said during this week — April 6-12 — 118 individuals are completing their 14-day quarantine.
“These individuals are commended for their commitment to this directive and for their spirit in protecting the health of our community,” the statement added.
“These 118 individuals were placed under quarantine in a designated quarantine facility, pursuant to Gov. Ralph DLG Torres's Second Amended Executive Order 2020-04, Directive 8, requiring that all individuals entering the CNMI be quarantined at a designated site for 14 days, beginning March 23, 2020.
“Upon completion of their respective quarantine period, each individual will be issued a certificate from CHCC indicating that they successfully completed quarantine. This certificate does not mean that the individual is not at risk for contracting Covid-19. They are still advised to follow precautionary measures as they re-enter the community, such as staying home, social distancing in public places, and avoiding unnecessary travel except for grocery shopping and picking up food, medicine, and essential supplies.
“The governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and CHCC remind the public and those who are leaving quarantine that the best way to protect yourself and others from Covid-19 and other illnesses is to stay at home and stop the spread.”
