Fall Raffle Announcement:  We Want your Input! 10

Good Morning All!

In mid-August,  Governor Bryan announced a step back in the progress of the territory’s fight against COVID-19.  In his press conference, he responded to the recent surge of cases on the St. Thomas and St. John district with an announcement that we would be reverting to the orange or “Stay at Home” phase beginning Monday, August 17.  (Read the full report here.)

Now, three weeks later,  the number of positive COVID-19 cases in the territory continues to climb, but a bit more slowly since the closure of tourism.   As of September 1, VITEMA reported 6 active cases on St. John, 103 on St. Thomas and 21 on St. Croix.  The governor said the closure to tourism would remain in effect until at least September 18.  The Stay at Home orders are in effect until at least the 8th.
