Coronavirus Hits Guam

Yesterday, the first cases of COVID-19 were reported on Guam late in the afternoon. Three cases at GMH. About ten minutes later, my son’s soccer league was suspended. This morning school is suspended until further notice, UOG is closed, the hospitals are not letting visitors in, and GovGuam has shut down all non-essential services for two weeks. On Saturday, the governor declared a health emergency and cancelled all events with 100+ people. Today that number is down to 50. And we are making up our plan forward at work right now. I am designating critical employees and probably sending the rest home for two weeks.
