“Jeff, Lt. Governor Josh, and I extend our sincerest condolences and sympathies to her family and friends,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “As the pandemic continues to test our limits, supporting one another becomes more important than ever. If you know someone struggling, I encourage you to reach out and see what you can do to help. This virus is isolating but it doesn’t diminish the importance of human connection.”

The CAR Score accounts for the incidence of new cases, how well current testing identifies these cases, and the rate of spread. An ideal CAR Score for Guam would be 5.0 and below.
