The Department of Public Health and Social Services has met with Michigan native Montae Willis who is going on 12 days in isolation on Guam after testing positive for COVID-19.

The 32-year-old Willis has questioned his COVID-19 test result, saying he’s very suspicious of the test after seeing the results himself.

“The birthdate was incorrect. The address was incorrect. The phone number was incorrect and the race was even incorrect. I don’t trust the results of my test because, as you seen in the photograph, they have my name at the top but there’s not a single thing other than my name to identify me to that positive result,” Willis told Fox News 2 Detroit.

According to DPHSS spokeswoman Janela Carrera, Public Health Medical Director and Infectious Disease Control Specialist Dr. Janna Manglona did speak with Willis and made an offer to him, in accordance with CDC guidelines, that may result in his release.

Carrera, however, did not specify what the nature of the offer was and why this may result in Willis’ release.

“The Department of Public Health and Social Services does have legal limits with respect to what it can disclose regarding any particular case,” Carrera said in a statement sent to PNC.

She added: “For now, he has declined and we respect his decision.”

According to Fox News 2 Detroit, Willis traveled to Guam August 13 in hopes of securing a contract to do some work at Andersen Air Force base. He was showing no COVID-19 symptoms but health officials in Guam quarantined him upon arrival because Michigan is considered a high-risk state.
