The Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force and Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation (CHCC) would like to inform the public that during this week (April 6-12, 2020), 118 individuals are completing their 14-day quarantine.

These individuals are commended for their commitment to this directive and for their spirit in protecting the health of our community.

These 118 individuals were placed under quarantine in a designated quarantine facility, pursuant to Governor Ralph DLG. Torres's Second Amended Executive Order 2020-04, Directive 8, requiring that all individuals entering the CNMI be quarantined at a designated site for 14 days, beginning March 23, 2020.

Upon completion of their respective quarantine period, each individual will be issued a certificate from the CHCC indicating that they successfully completed quarantine. This certificate does not mean that the individual is not at risk for contracting COVID-19. They are still advised to follow precautionary measures as they re-enter the community, such as staying home, social distancing in public places, and avoiding unnecessary travel except for grocery shopping and picking up food, medicine, and essential supplies.

The Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force and CHCC reminds the public that the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 and other illnesses is to continue to practice social distancing, which means avoiding close contact with people in order to avoid catching the virus yourself and to avoid passing it on.

  • Please stay home as much as possible. Avoid unnecessary travel or exposure in public places.
  • Avoid social gatherings in groups of more than 10.
  • Avoid eating out at restaurants. Use drive-thru, take-out, or delivery options.
  • Older adults and people with chronic medical conditions are at higher risk of getting very sick from this illness. People at high risk should stay at home as much as possible.
  • Create a household plan of action ready.html
  • Ensure a 30-day supply of all medicines.

Continue good hand hygiene:

  • Wash your hands for at least 20 second with soap and water, avoid touching your face, cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are unavailable.

Know the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and what to do if you become symptomatic:

  • Stay home when you are sick and if you recently traveled to a place with COVID-19. Selfquarantine looks like:
    • Choose a room in your house that can be used to separate sick household members from others.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Limit visitors
