Coronavirus has impacted everyone. Thousands are unable to work, had their businesses temporarily closed or shut down. President Donald Trump has signed into federal law an eviction ban for 90 days, and this is exactly what ALL essential services need to do, especially in a small island with many rural residents who live more than a walk away from people and resources. Although water and power companies in Guam have agreed not to disconnect services until the lockdown is over, we need more than that. No one will have money the day after the lockdown. For some it will be 1-2 weeks before their first paycheck, and for others, they will have to find new jobs.

We don't know how long the current lockdown will last, and people need food, water, electric, phone and internet service. In today's age there is no argument that such things are essential - we are using them right now to communicate and get information on the coronavirus situation. We will use them to call ambulances, apply for benefits, and order supplies in the mail when the store is out. You may use them right now to work or study from home, or to receive or send money to family or friends off-island.

We are asking for a suspension of bills for ALL essential services- mortgage, rent, electric, water, mail/PO boxes, phone, and internet - for every resident of Guam currently subscribed. No billing and no disconnections until ONE MONTH AFTER the lifting of the lockdown order. 

Please do the right thing and make an order to ensure that people's needs are met and no utility company behaves in a cruel insensitive manner during this time, and that they work together to help us all get through this and keep the infections and deaths to a minimum.
