(Office of the Governor) — The Governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and the Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. announced on Friday, Aug. 14, 2020, the confirmation of one new Covid-19 case in the CNMI.

The individual was identified through a mandatory pre-operation screening for a scheduled surgery operation at the CHCC hospital and was not identified through the Community Based Testing initiative nor travel screening. CHCC has already initiated contact tracing for the most immediate contacts of the new confirmed case.

The individual has been moved to the designated isolation area for close monitoring.

The Covid-19 Task Force and CHCC will release other relevant information as soon as it becomes available.

Along with the current proactive measures and guidance put in place within the community and at our borders, it is crucial that members of the CNMI community do not let their guard down and prevent the spread of the virus.

This latest case brings the CNMI to a total of 10 community screening transmissions. Of the total 50 confirmed cases, 25 cases have been identified through port of entry screening procedures in accordance with the CNMI Covid-19 Emergency Directives, 15 from known contacts, and now 10 through community screening.

Of the 25 cases identified through port of entry, 20 cases originated from the U.S. mainland, two from a U.S. territory, and three from a foreign country.

Beyond these border protection measures, the Governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and CHCC remind everyone in the community to continue to practice good hand-hygiene, wear a face-covering, continue social distancing, and limit time spent in public places as much as possible.
