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 17 vaccinated people hospitalized for COVID-19 compared to 172 unvaccinated people hospitalized for COVID- 19. The risk of being hospitalized for COVID-19 is about 10 times higher for the unvaccinated as compared to the vaccinated.

Community Reminded to Continue Wearing Face Masks

Wearing of face masks is required in congregate settings, whether indoors or outdoors, in accordance with DPHSS Guidance, regardless of vaccination status. 


Monoclonal Antibody Therapy Treatment Continues

DPHSS, in partnership with the Mayors’ Council of Guam and the Guam National Guard, continues to offer outpatient monoclonal antibody (mAb) therapy at the Mangilao Senior Citizens Center in Mangilao. Patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 may receive mAb therapy if they meet the eligibility criteria through a referral from their private physician, a COVID-19 community test site, or a hospital. A Pre-Screening Assessment has been developed to guide individuals who may be eligible for mAb treatment.
