“Jeff, Josh, and I are deeply saddened by the passing of more of our island brothers and sisters, and we ask the community to join us in prayer as we extend our sincerest condolences to their loved ones in mourning,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “Remembering the lives of those we have lost to this virus especially as the holidays draw near should give us pause. Let’s honor their legacies and do everything that we can to protect all those around us.”

 

DON’T WAIT UNTIL IT’S TOO LATE. Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. Seek emergency medical care immediately or call 911 if you have trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, new confusion, inability to wake or stay awake, or bluish lips or face.

SPECIAL NOTE: Based on today's data, if we were to compare two (2) hypothetical populations of 100,000 people each, vaccinated versus unvaccinated, there would be 18 vaccinated people hospitalized for COVID-19 compared to 241 unvaccinated people hospitalized for COVID- 19. The risk of being hospitalized for COVID-19 is about 13 times higher for the unvaccinated as compared to the vaccinated.
