Governor: ‘We can only test the samples we are given’


In a tweet this morning Governor Lou Leon Guerrero encouraged island residents who may be displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 to call their doctor or dial the GovGuam COVID-19 information hotline – 311.

The Department of Public Health tested only nine people Sunday, none of whom tested positive. Over the past week, just 154 tests have been conducted and only 3 people were found to be positive for COVID-19.

“We can only test the samples we are given,” said the Governor in her tweet.

“While we wait for our order of test kits to arrive,” said the Governor. “Our priority testing guidelines will remain.”
