Please maintain your efforts in following the preventive measures so that we may continue to have low case numbers and be one of the safest communities in the nation.

The Department of Health continues to coordinate vaccination points of distribution around the island to inoculate medical personnel, first responders and critical workers from the virus. Everyone will have an opportunity to be vaccinated as more vaccine becomes available.
