The Joint Information Center was notified that Guam’s 267th COVID-19-related fatality occurred at the Guam Regional Medical City on December 1, 2021.
The patient was an 85-year-old female, unvaccinated. She tested positive on November 29, 2021.
“Governor Leon Guerrero and I pray for solace for her friends and family,” said Acting Governor Josh Tenorio. “With the holidays here, we must remain persistent with our efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at upcoming gatherings. Continue to wear your mask around others who are not within your immediate household, keep a safe and healthy distance between yourself and others, and do not attend a social gathering if you are sick. Most importantly, get vaccinated if you are eligible and get your booster shot if it’s been six months or more. These are all important measures to emerge from this holiday season stronger.”
