Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a novel infectious disease caused by a new virus. The disease causes respiratory illness with symptoms such as cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing.

Although the heart and soul of the territory revolves around hospitality, on Wednesday March 25, the U.S. Virgin Islands took a bold step to help stop the global spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) by directing all hotels, AirBnB and VRBO hosts to discontinue accepting guests for 30 days — until April 25.

By taking this action, St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix joined forces with many other Caribbean vacation destinations in a worldwide effort to stem the tide of this insidious disease.

During this period, island residents have been instructed to stay at home, and all non-essential businesses ordered to close. Essential operations such as grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, post offices and gas stations remain open — but hours may be limited. Restaurants that elect to remain open are limited to Take-Out service only.

At this time, before heading to your favorite eateries for Take-Out, it’s wise to call ahead or go online to confirm days of operation and hours of service. Also be aware that some menu selections may be limited.

Rest assured that everyone looks forward to the return of visitors to our beautiful islands.

Take care. Stay healthy. Stay safe.
