A message from our Governor
March 27, 2020
Good Day All:
As Governor of the US Virgin Islands, I want to welcome you to our US Territory at this time of great world pandemic crisis. Whether you have visited regularly in the past or if this is a first visit, we are pleased to be able to extend to you a safe haven under US Flag protection at this grave time.
While here, we request that you abide by the orders and compliance requests of the US Coast Guard (USCG), the US Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), the Department of Planning and Natural Resources (DPNR) and the Emergency Executive Orders (as supplemented) issued by me. In particular, we request you abide by the rules for mooring by DPNR. We, also, request that the provisions of the Executive Order for Stay in Place on your vessels and to report any health issues of persons on your vessels to the local Depart of Health (DOH). Information on how to make those reports will be provided to you.
Please also note that while we welcome you to continue to stay in the USVI for the duration of this crisis, you will need to follow the regulations of DPNR on continued mooring in approved bays. We also extend a welcome to you to consider staying in the USVI beyond the pandemic crisis and join the USVI marine family and economy.
Thank You and Welcome.
Albert Bryan Jr. Governor
