Good day all,

I hope that you all are well and enjoyed a pleasant Whit Monday earlier this week.

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.
