It feels as though a lot has changed since we last met in May.

Statement by His Excellency Governor Jaspert on the Further Relaxing of COVID-19 Measures

Wednesday, 3 June 2020 - 4:46pm

Good day all,

I hope that you all are well and enjoyed a pleasant Whit Monday earlier this week. I know these continue to be uncertain and unsettling times, but this week, I have felt encouraged by how far we have come in our COVID-19 response. Many more businesses have reopened with social distancing measures in place, the public have been able to enjoy our beautiful beaches and restaurants again over the long weekend, and of course, there are currently no confirmed active COVID-19 cases in BVI. Importantly, some of our citizens are now able to return to home under strict conditions.
