Consistent with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding areas of substantial or high transmission, visitors to our St. Croix parks - Christiansted National Historic Site, Buck Island Reef National Monument, and Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve - regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask inside all park buildings. Because there is currently a high level of COVID transmission in the Virgin Islands, masks must be worn by all National Park Service employees, visitors, on-site contractors, concessionaire staff, commercial use authorization holders, and other partners using or occupying federal facilities, regardless of vaccination status.
We will continue to assess the situation daily, and we encourage people who choose to visit St. Croix and our parks during this pandemic to continue to adhere to guidance from the CDC. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html. #RecreateResponsibly.
