Hagåtña, Guam – Acting Governor Josh Tenorio issues the following statement relative to the extension of federal funding for COVID-19 Public Assistance Category B and National Guard Title 32 costs through April 1, 2022:

“We are grateful to the Biden Administration for extending FEMA support and enabling our Guam National Guard members to continue their critical mission here at home, containing the virus and saving lives. Throughout the pandemic and to this day, we have leaned on our local service members to fill roles in all areas of our pandemic response, including quarantine, testing, vaccination, and now treatment. The recent rollout of COVID-19 vaccines for children 5 to 11 years of age and ongoing efforts to provide booster shots for those eligible have kept the demands on our servicemembers steady as support for the Department of Public Health and Social Services in its critical mission to protect Guam’s public health. As Public Health works to increase its capacities and strengthen its personnel, this extension will allow it to ensure an orderly and efficient transition.”
