After 5 days of mass testing in various Island villages last week, Adelup now says they have no additional pop-up centers planned.

Krystal Paco San Agustin, the Governor’s Press Secretary, told PNC News that Public Health is now, “doing more targeted areas from hereon, like senior homes.”

Paco San Agustin said, “residents wanting to get tested can call 311 for the nurse triage. They can also call their provider, or go to the Northern Region Community Health Center to be evaluated.”

Last week, Public Health held testing clinics in Astumbo, Mangilao and Agat to swab residents with symptoms of COVID-19.

This past Saturday, Public Health nurse teams began their targeted outreach, with on-the-spot swabbing at the Hemlani apartment buildings and among Guam’s homeless population.
