On Tuesday, November 10, 2020, the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) tested 259 prisoners from various units at the Department of Corrections (DOC) Mangilao facility. Eight officers were also tested on this day. Results yielded 61 positive cases, 60 prisoners and one officer, all of whom remain in isolation.

In addition to identified isolation and quarantine housing units within the facility, Guam Homeland Security/Office of Civil Defense and the Department of Public Works will provide medical tents and containers, if needed.
