One Additional GDOE Employee Tests Positive for COVID-19

On Thursday, September 10, 2020, the Guam Department of Education (GDOE) confirmed that one additional employee from J.Q. San Miguel Elementary School tested positive for COVID-19. This case was identified through contact tracing efforts.The GDOE is working closely with the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) to conduct contact tracing and close contacts of the confirmed cases will be contacted directly by DPHSS. A close contact is an individual who has come in face-to-face contact with a confirmed COVID-19 individual for at least 10 minutes or more and within six feet, or who has had direct contact with infectious secretions of the confirmed COVID-19 individual (e.g. being coughed on).

Areas of the campus will be identified for cleaning and disinfecting as needed. GDOE employees will not have access to these areas until cleaning has been completed.
