There are three confirmed cases of COVID-19 on island and GovGuam says it tested 12 people for the virus today - but all 12 tested today came back negative for coronavirus.

Early this morning the governor announced the suspension of all non-critical GovGuam operations and public and private schools were canceled.

What we know right now is that on Sunday night the governor announced three confirmed cases, two people who are related and with travel history to the Philippines arriving back on Guam on Feb. 29.

The third case is an individual with no travel history. All three are elderly and being quarantined at the Guam Memorial Hospital.

While Public Health conducts its investigation to trace their travel and contacts in the community, the governor has ordered the prohibition of social gatherings of 50 or more which includes spiritual and recreational activities.

For the private sector businesses cannot fill more than half of their capacity, there is an exception however for stores that sell necessities.

The Maga'haga has also ordered that all visitors to Guam seeking entry and who have spent more than a week or more in an area affected by COVID-19 be subject to mandatory quarantine.

She is also asking residents to practice "social distancing" and preventative measures like thorough handwashing.
