The Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) tested four individuals for COVID-19 on Monday, May 11, 2020 with conclusive results. Zero tested positive through DPHSS and four tested negative for SARS-CoV-2. No other samples were received today.

The DPHSS overall count also includes probable cases of COVID-19 and confirmed positive cases tested by the Naval Health Research Center (NHRC) in San Diego, the U.S. Naval Hospital (USNH) Guam, the Guam Memorial Hospital Authority (GMHA), Guam Regional Medical City (GRMC), the Guam National Guard (GUNG), and Diagnostic Laboratory Services (DLS).

To date, there have been 151 cases confirmed through COVID-19 testing provided with 5 deaths and 124 released from isolation. When a patient is released from isolation, he or she is no longer considered infectious. DPHSS uses CDC’s test-based criteria for releasing patients from isolation. This requires COVID-19 patients to have two consecutive negative tests at least 24 hours apart before being released from isolation. All remaining cases are in isolation. 

Some cases that were previously released from isolation have returned to active isolation status after re-testing positive for COVID-19 through follow-up testing. To date, no additional cases have been linked to people released from isolation. As this is an evolving situation, information is subject to change with little to no notice. 

Avoid Fake Social Media Accounts and Scams Related to COVID-19 Economic Payments

The Joint Information Center is aware of fake Facebook and Instagram accounts posing as Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. The false Facebook accounts are using the names “govlouleon” or “governorlou” and the false Instagram account is under the name “__governorguam.” The fake accounts reportedly offer to other social media users a cash grant in a potential COVID-19 related fraudulent scam. 

The reported fake accounts are not connected to any official account from the Office of the Governor or any official announcement regarding COVID-19 economic payments. Governor Leon Guerrero’s official Facebook account can be found at @govlouguam and the official Instagram account can be found at @govlouguam. 

The community is reminded to be on the lookout for scam artists trying to use the economic impact payments as cover schemes to steal personal information and/or money. Remember, the Internal Revenue Services (IRS) will not call, text you, email you or contact you on social media asking for personal or bank account information – even related to the economic impact payments. Also, watch out for emails with attachments or links claiming to have special information about economic impact payments or refunds.

For inquiries on COVID-19, contact 311 through a local number, or call the Joint Information Center at (671) 478-0208/09/10.
