The Guam Governor, Lou Guerrero said Covid-19 is cold, ruthless, and painfully isolating.

"We all have to be frontliners to defeat this virus and we must do so at the community-level," she said.

Guam has moved today to a Safer at-Home advisory, but the governor said this doesn't mean people should become complacent and let their guards down.

It follows a Stay At Home order.

The change will include some businesses re-opening but to just 25 percent of their capacity, and non-contact sports resuming.
