Bryan Cancels Weekend Appearances, Calls on Virgin Islanders to Stay Away From Mass Gatherings at Beaches, Clubs and Parties as Delta Variant Spreads and Hospitalizations Reach 19


Governor Albert Bryan in a video statement Friday night appeared somber as he called on Virgin Islanders to forsake mass gatherings, including steering clear of parties, beaches, clubs and bars this weekend as Covid-19 cases in the USVI grow and the presence of the Delta variant now confirmed. Mr. Bryan also stated that nineteen patients were hospitalized with the disease the most since the onset of the pandemic in March 2020.

"Our Dept. of Health has confirmed the contagious and the more deadly Delta variant of the Covid-19 virus. With the presence of the variant has come the most recent surge," Mr. Bryan said.

D.O.H. confirmed 189 active cases as of Friday: 51 on St. Croix, 132 on St. Thomas and six on St. John. This week's positivity rate stood at 3.67 percent, "and for the first time in the Virgin Islands, we have nineteen people hospitalized with Covid throughout the territory," Mr. Bryan said.

The governor said that of the thirty-five total Covid-related deaths, three occurred within the last 72 hours. "Needless to say, we find ourselves confronting the unknown once again," he said.
