(Office of the Governor) — The Governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and the Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. announced on Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2020, that the CNMI Community-Based Testing Initiative will resume for the next four weeks starting Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2020.

Since April 28, 2020, the CNMI community-based initiative has tested 12,681 people for Covid-19 on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota. This is approximately 24% of the CNMI’s population.

The Governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and CHCC remind the public that getting tested for Covid-19 does not improve response to the illness, nor does it reduce the risk of contracting or transmitting the disease. People who are tested and have a negative result, are still vulnerable to the virus.

The task force and CHCC continue to encourage residents within the Marianas to practice the 3 W’s – Wash your hands, watch your distance, and wear a face covering.
