(VI Consortium) While the Bryan administration could soon reintroduce Covid-induced restrictions aimed at taming the rising numbers of Covid-19 in the territory, which topped 300 Thursday, Governor Albert Bryan told the Consortium Friday that a decision had not been made.
The governor said during a recent press briefing that restrictions would come if cases were to top 300, though he was wary of providing a set number because considerations for such actions involve many elements.
The governor said during a July 26 press briefing that a high number of hospitalizations, not just the rising Covid cases, would lead to restrictions if they persisted. When hospitalizations were at twenty territory-wide, Mr. Bryan said, “If that number doesn’t go down we are already making contingency plans on what we’ll have to do if we have to do another shutdown because that’s just unacceptable. If you look at our numbers, the Delta [variant] has just doubled everything.”
