An 89-year old St. Croix man has died of COVID-19, bringing the territory’s confirmed total  to 105 as of Feb. 9, according to the Department of Health. The last death was two days ago, when a 68-year-old St. Thomas woman died.

The Health Department continues to work to slow the spread of COVID-19 by encouraging the community to continue practicing social distancing, wearing a mask when in the company of others outside of those in your household, cleaning frequently used areas thoroughly, and washing your hands often with soap and warm water.

Getting the COVID-19 vaccine can prevent severe illness and death. To schedule an
appointment, call (340) 777-8227 or visit covid19usvi.com/vaccines. Walk-ins are also accepted at Community Vaccination Centers.
