The Virgin Islands National Park on St. John is announcing additional modifications to operations to support federal, territorial and local efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Beginning April 10, the park will resume mooring fee collection in order to help boaters during the territorial stay-at-home order. The V.I. Government requires all boaters to complete the one-page health screening form.
According to the park superintendent, the safety of visitors, employees, volunteers, neighbors and partners is the number one priority. The National Park Service (NPS) is working with federal, territorial and local authorities to closely monitor COVID-19.
As of Monday, March 23, Virgin Islands National Park will offer very limited services outside those that support visitor or resource protection. The following services and operations will be modified in order to comply with the governor’s order.
Due to the current and very fluid situation with COVID-19, the Friends of Virgin Islands National Park are working to make sure its staff, volunteers, members, partners, visitors and community members are not put at undue risk.
Where it is possible to adhere to the latest health guidance, the park will remain open to provide healthy options for the public. Park trails, beaches and waters remain open.
