St. John, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS – The VI Department of Health is advising the St. John community that the Morris DeCastro Clinic will close at 12 p.m. for the remainder of the week.

Power outages have impacted the compressor of one of the clinic’s air conditioning units. The clinic will operate on an abbreviated schedule until repairs have been completed.

Health Card issuance which normally occurs after 12 p.m., has also been rescheduled to between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., until further notice.

The VI Department of Health apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and asks for the community’s patience as it works to repair the air conditioning unit.
