The people of Guam must be doing something right. For the third day in a row, the COVID Area Risk (CAR) Score has been below 5.0, and has been dropping successively.
According to Krystal Paco-San Agustin, governor's director of communications, the CAR Score as of today is 3.4. The score yesterday was 3.9. The Monday score was 4.2.
Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero has said she is inclined to ease COVID-19 restrictions if the CAR Score can be sustained at or below 5.0 over a certain period of time.
Dr. Felix Cabrera, member of the governor's physicians advisory group, said he prefers that decision be made after two weeks of the score sustaining at or below 5.0.
According to today's COVID-19 report for Guam, only 31 out of 752 people tested for Coronavirus tested positive. The number of total positive cases in active isolation also has dropped to 803, with 38 of those active cases in the hospital, 10 of them in the ICU, and now seven on a ventilator.
