In the wake of a 78 percent one-week jump in St. Thomas COVID-19 cases, Gov. Bryan is holding a press conference at 1 p.m. Thursday where new restrictions are expected.
In just the past week, since Wed. Aug. 5, the number of confirmed positive cases in the USVI has jumped 36 percent, from 501 to 682. But St. Thomas has seen a massive 78 percent jump in one week, from 194 confirmed cases on Aug. 5 to 346 confirmed cases as of Thursday morning.
The press conference will be broadcast on the government access cable channel and the V.I. government Facebook page.
