Suppression measures working!


Despite criticisms from some quarters on the COVID-19 suppression measures put in place by Government, the Virgin Islands continues to effectively manage its COVID-19 situation while gradually reopening its borders and easing internal restrictions.

The vaccination of persons with the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine is also expected to quicken the return to normalcy in the VI.
