Superintendent of Guam Department of Education (GDOE), Jon Fernandez speaks to Patti about three GDOE employees in non-compliance after they refused to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or submit to weekly testing of the virus. According to Fernandez, though he respects the decision of these individuals to exercise their freedoms, GDOE employees must still adhere to the Executive Order requiring either full vaccination or weekly testing in order to come to work. Fernandez says he is working with Department of Administration (DOA) to address these issues.
