RESOURCES TO MANAGE COVID-19
We're in this together.
Today, we are taking dramatic steps to stem the coronavirus contagion, which has infected hundreds of people on our shores. Actions like sheltering-in-place may seem severe, but they are necessary to safeguard public health. After all, we can restore our economy, but we cannot revive lost loved ones.
While this is a difficult time for the islands, I believe that we will emerge from this crisis more resilient and better connected to one another. If you need any help, please don't hesitate to contact my office. We're here for you, always.
