The Division of Environmental Health (DEH) protects human health by preventing harmful environmental conditions through a combination of surveillance, education, enforcement, and assessment services.
We prevent, minimize, and eliminate exposure to biological, chemical, and physical hazards. Our regulatory services include permitting and inspecting businesses and public facilities.
We increase environmental awareness by educating the public, implementing new legislation, and enforcing the current Virgin Islands and Federal Public Health Laws.
DEH processes health cards required for people who work in the following industries: food service, public lodging, childcare, cosmetology, beauty, barbers, hair braiders, spas, nail salons, body art/tattoo parlors, and massage parlors.
