A third employee of the 35th Guam Legislature has tested positive for COVID-19.

In an Aug. 25 memorandum, the legislature’s executive director, Joseph R. San Agustin, said the employee remains in home isolation, as advised by the Department of Public Health and Social Services.

The last day the employee was at the Guam Congress Building was Wednesday, August 12 — the day before the facility was closed.

San Agustin said the Guam Legislature continues to be guided by the Department of Public Health on timelines and procedures for reopening the Guam Congress Building and allowing employees to return to their respective worksites.

As advised by DPHSS, this earliest possible date is Thursday, August 27, 2020.

This development brings the total confirmed cases of Legislative members and employees to three.

San Agustin said any employees with questions should contact their immediate supervisor, Human Resources, or his office at joesa@guamlegislature.org.
