There are no barriers to getting vaccinated. There are accommodations being made for seniors and individuals with disabilities, and being undocumented should not stop anyone from seeking the vaccine.

Anyone who thinks they may have contracted COVID-19 can call the Epidemiology Hotline at 712-6299 or 776-1519. For more information, visit www.covid19usvi.com.

The Bryan-Roach Administration is committed to transparency, stabilizing the economy, restoring trust in the government and ensuring the disaster recovery is completed as quickly as possible.
