(Governor’s Covid-19 Task Force/CHCC) — The Governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and the Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. would like to inform the public that one additional person has been confirmed to have contracted Covid-19.

The individual is a 30-year-old female, asymptomatic, and has existing medical conditions. She was a recent passenger of the May 28, 2020 United Airlines flight from Guam that originated from the U.S. mainland. Specimens were collected, processed, and confirmed positive at CHCC Laboratory Tuesday.

The individual, along with other passengers aboard the same flight have safely been in quarantine upon their arrival and are being monitored closely by CHCC medical teams.

As of June 2, 2020, 23 people had been diagnosed with Covid-19 in the CNMI, including five active cases, 16 recoveries, and two deaths.

The governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and CHCC continue to encourage residents within the Marianas to practice social distancing, which means avoiding close contact with people in order to avoid catching the virus yourself and to avoid passing it on to others.

During crises like this, oftentimes the spread of misinformation is just as dangerous as the virus itself. The CNMI is reminded to only share official and verified notices, press releases, and advisories from the governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and CHCC.
