Covid Act Now is adding the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands as the second United States territory on our COVID warning system. Check out our first U.S. territory launch of Puerto Rico.
The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands is a territory of the United States located in the Pacific Ocean. It has a population of about 51,433 (as estimated in the 2020 census data), with 90% of the population living on Saipan.
Our hope is that this coverage will give residents of the Northern Mariana Islands the power to make informed decisions on subjects from individual education to public policy, like stay-at-home and mask orders.
Covid Act Now is committed to providing individuals and policy-makers with accurate and useful information on COVID trends for all communities dealing with COVID, including U.S. territories.
Our goal is to build a shared understanding of COVID and inform data-driven decision-making through clear, actionable, and real-time COVID risk data for every U.S resident.
