The Northern Marianas has recorded two more cases of Covid-19, taking their total number of infections to 77.
The latest two cases were two new flight arrivals who were identified during travel screening.
The two have been moved to the designated isolation area for monitoring.
There have now been 51 travel-related coronavirus cases, 29 from the US mainland, 12 from Guam and 10 from other countries.
Meanwhile the CNMI is looking to create a travel bubble with South Korea and is already in talks with several airlines including Jeju Airlines and Asiana Airlines.
Before launching the bubble, Governor Ralph Torres said he first wanted to make sure the CNMI community would continue to be safe.
He also said he wanted safeguards to be in place for those on the front-line when the tourism industry reopened.
