The Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force and the Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation (CHCC) announce that the CNMI is in COVID-19 Community Level Medium.

Overview

The safety and health of the people of the CNMI remain the top priorities of the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force and the CHCC.

With the CNMI transitioning from CDC Community Level High to Medium, there is a change in indoor masking recommendations. It is no longer recommended for all people to wear a mask indoors in public.

In Community Level Medium, people who are considered immunocompromised or at high risk for severe illness should talk to their healthcare provider about whether they need to wear a mask and take other precautions. Also, people who live with or have social contact with immunocompromised individuals should wear a mask when indoors with them.

The CHCC will continue to require visitors and clinic patients to wear masks in patient-serving areas.

Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters, as they remain the best protection against severe illness.

Effective March 26, 2022, all travelers entering the CNMI by air or sea will no longer be tested on arrival or on their 5th-day after arrival.

All travelers are required to complete a mandatory health declaration form. Travelers are encouraged to fill out their health declaration form prior to arrival at www.staysafecnmi.com.

Ensuring access to vaccines, treatments, and testing remains in the CNMI’s plan with living COVID-19 safe.
