The Air Conditioning (AC) unit at the Charles Harwood Complex, located on St. Croix, unfortunately continues to experience technical issues. As a result, the Department of Health (DOH), on St. Croix, will be closing at 12:30pm today and granting administrative leave to the staff. Various program/clinics have committed to caring for all clients before leaving the premises.
Due to the AC unit not functioning at full capacity, the DOH will be open from 8am-12pm on Friday, January 20th and Monday, January 23rd, until we are able to resolve the issue with the unit. However, the Maternal & Child Health (MCH) program will still be holding the scheduled Shriners Orthopedic Clinic on Friday, January 20th.
The Department of Health will update the staff, media and public as to the status of the AC unit, as updates becomes available.
We regret any inconvenience to our clients, the public and our staff.
Thank you for your understanding.
