“Our hearts go out to the loved ones of those lost to this deadly virus,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “COVID-19 knows no bounds; with no location completely free of it, no age completely safe from it. Because of this, we must create boundaries around our community. We can do this by getting vaccinated, wearing our masks around those outside of our household, and practicing social distancing.”
