As per the Governor Ralph DLG Torres, “This pandemic is filled with unknowns, but what is known is the aggressive response efforts we are taking to flatten the curve more than the rest of the world, and as Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. (CHCC) and our team continue to strategize mass testing for our community, we must keep our guard up until we defeat this disease.”
“Let’s continue to support our brave doctors and nurses, health care workers, first responders, their families, local and federal government employees, and private sector partners by staying home as much as you can,” he added.
