The safety of the residents of the CNMI remains the top priority of the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force and the Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation. With approximately 96.7% of the CNMI’s eligible population fully vaccinated, combined with the expansion of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster shot eligibility to 12- to 17-year-olds, the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force and the CHCC is updating its quarantine protocols in accordance with U.S. Centers for Disease and Control’s guidance.

Earlier today, Governor Ralph Dlg.
