Alpha Insurers says memo about coronavirus was for staff; no cases of coronavirus in Saipan


Alpha Insurers has issued a retraction of an internal memo that was sent to their employees earlier today advising them to sanitize their work stations because of reported cases of the coronavirus in Saipan.

The CNMI’s Commonwealth Health Corporation and CNMI office of the Governor has released a statement saying that no coronavirus case have been confirmed in the Commonwealth.

According to a statement from the company, an employee sent the memo to a family member, causing it to become viral.

The statement also said that the reason why the memo was issued was in response to growing concerns about the coronavirus coming to the Marianas and for company employees to take preventative measures from the disease.
