Commissioner Kimberley Causey-Gomez advises the public that the V.I. Department of Human Services (DHS) continues to serve its constituents throughout the territory; however, due to a COVID exposure, the SNAP Issuance Office located at Mars Hill on St. Croix will be closed beginning today and will reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2022.

The health and safety of its employees and clients during the pandemic is very important to the department. DHS is asking the public to refrain from visiting offices in person unless necessary.
