On Thursday, October 15, 2020, the Guam Department of Education (GDOE) confirmed that one individual from George Washington High School (GWHS) tested positive for COVID-19.

This case was identified through contact tracing efforts. The GDOE is working closely with DPHSS to conduct contact tracing and any close contacts of the confirmed case will be contacted directly by DPHSS.

Areas of GWHS will be identified for cleaning and disinfecting as needed. Employees will not have access to these areas until cleaning has been completed. Food distribution will continue uninterrupted. Due to ongoing contact tracing, GWHS is postponing next week’s hard copy packet distribution.
