(Office of the Governor) — The Governor’s Covid-19 Task Force announced that the CNMI Community-Based Testing Initiative will be temporarily suspended until further notice.

As of Sept. 14, 2020, the CNMI had collected 19,345 specimens for Covid-19 on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota. This is approximately 34%  of the CNMI’s population.

Please continue to follow updates and announcements from the Governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and the Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. on the next phase of community-based testing.

The task force and CHCC remind the public that getting tested for Covid-19 does not improve response to the illness, nor does it reduce the risk of contracting or transmitting the disease. People who are tested and have a negative result are still vulnerable to the virus.

Residents within the Marianas are encouraged to practice the 3 W’s: “Wear a mask, wash your hands, and watch your distance.”

For information on the CNMI’s response to Covid-19, contact the Governor’s Covid-19 Task Force hotline numbers at 287-0046, 287-0489 or 287-1089.
