Hello all! And Happy Fri-YAY! After I posted about the BVI on Wednesday, a ton of you wrote in and commented about the status of travel protocol for the USVI. And, on that front, not much has changed. But, here’s a refresher and update for all of you lucky ones out there who have upcoming trips to St. John on the horizon 🙂
Happy Tuesday to you all! Today, I wanted to take a moment to update you on the COVID-19 situation in the territory. Not much has changed as far as regulations go and there has been no mention of closing down again. But, just like everywhere else, numbers are climbing for the USVI on the COVID front. So, I wanted to take a moment to make sure we are all up to date with info here on the site 🙂
Good Monday Morning! Normally I would wait until after the Monday Government House Press Conference to update you on COVID-19 information and changes to regulations. But, this weekend, Lieutenant Governor Roach signed an Executive Order making some somewhat immediate changes to travel testing protocol. So for those of you with upcoming travel plans to the USVI, I wanted to get this out immediately.
Good Morning, Good Morning! It has been a few weeks since my last update on the COVID-19 front in the Virgin Islands. And, with positive cases rising in the USVI, an enormous surge in the British Virgin Islands and that nasty Delta variant starting to rear its head here in the territories…Well, I thought it might be a good time to get everyone up to speed on the current travel requirements, territory safety protocols and a bit of other news about the presence of the virus in the Virgin Islands.
It’s Fri-YAY! I hope everyone is gearing up for a fun summertime weekend 🙂 There have been some big things evolving on the COVID-19 front in both the US and British Virgin Islands over the past week. And today I wanted to take a moment to update you on those happenings.
Good Morning world! I watched the Governor’s Press Conference on Monday and, although there are no relevant changes to the policies in place, I thought it might be time for a gentle reminder about the ones that have been rolling for quite some time. He did have a brief update on rising COVID numbers and cruise travel that I thought to be interesting to share as well.
Yes, you read that right! The bars of the USVI are once again OPEN for seating! These words ring music to the ears of all of the bar tenders and bar sitters of these great islands 🙂
Good Afternoon! I hope that you all had a great weekend and are getting into this work week bursting with positivity and productivity! I did not get a post up earlier this morning because I thought there might be a decent amount to update after Governor Bryan’s press conference this afternoon. Unfortunately, there aren’t many changes to report on, but it sound like, with additional guidance in the future from the CDC, there could be on the horizon!
Good Morning! I hope you all had a great weekend! On Friday, the British Virgin Islands’ Minister of Health and Social Development, Honourable Calvin Malone, released a statement in regards to loosening restrictions on seaport traffic and border restrictions and quarantine protocols in an attempt to increase visitor traffic into the territory.
Happy Hump Day! And, we are halfway through the week! How’s everyone doing out there? Things seem to have calmed down a WEE bit on St. John this past week. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still super busy, but it doesn’t feel like we are bursting at the seams anymore. And, seemingly, the government imposed mandates in regards to COVID-19 have remained effective through the Winter and Spring Break booms. On Monday, Governor Bryan announced a few more small steps to loosen some of the current COVID restrictions in light of positive cases remaining low and vaccination distribution remaining high in the USVI.
