(Tumon, Guam) The management of Hafa Adai Bingo is trying to get the word out to its hundreds of patrons who visited its bingo hall in Tamuning between March 6 to March 15, to contact the Medical Triage Hotlines if they have not done so already.
Public health officials are reporting that at least two COVID-19 confirmed patients frequented the bingo hall from "March 6 through March 16, 2020."
Public health officials have asked Hafa Adai Bingo patrons who visited the bingo hall between March 6 and March 16 to contact their hotlines; however, according to the bingo company's management, the bingo hall was not open on March 16. Management closed the operation beginning the evening of March 15, following the governor's announcement of the first three cases.
Below is a message from Hafa Adai Bingo's management, which includes the hotlines:
To all Hafa Adai Bingo patrons,
