No drinking on Good Friday in the VIs

"On Good Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Virgin Islands is supposed to be dry," said police department spokesman Thomas Hannah.  "For seven hours, we want everyone to refrain from drinking alcohol," he said,  the Virgin islands Daily News reported. 

Good Friday is the only day alcohol sales are restricted by the V.I. Code, whether it’s in restaurants, bars, or across the store counter.  Hannah said the territory’s law has no authority over individuals drinking.

The Easter holiday extends through Monday on the island.  All local government agencies and schools will be closed, as will be the telephone and cable company offices.  Most retailers will be open during the weekend and Monday.
