On Tuesday, the V.I. Department of Health provided free COVID-19 testing at the Home Depot parking lot on St. Croix. There has recently been a spike in COVID-19 cases in the territory, bringing the total amount up to 188 active cases. A few participants expressed their worry after traveling during the Thanksgiving holiday. “I just got back from a trip and quarantined for five days. I’m taking my test to make sure I am in the clear,” one participant said.
There was a second-round on Thursday at Plaza West and Home Depot. The Health Department did free testing on St. Thomas at the Home Depot on Thursday too.
