“Our oldest COVID-19 survivor at 92 years old … you heard her fears as she was confirmed positive for COVID-19, you heard her hope as she began to recover from the illness. You heard how she turned to prayer and her family and you heard the support she received from Public Health every step of the way. Her story is just one of 130 other stories of recovery,” the governor said.

The governor commended her for sharing her story and showing that while some may face the virus supported by family or others alone in isolation, each showed us the courage, strength, and resilience to beat COVID-19.

The governor is encouraging residents to use the hashtag #COVIDHeroesGU on their social media posts to highlight people, groups, and businesses who are stepping up to assist the island’s COVID-19 response efforts.
