U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS— Governor Albert Bryan Jr. issued the following statement on the passing of former BVI Minister of Health and Social Development Carvin Malone.

“On behalf of the people of the U.S. Virgin Islands and our government, I express my deepest condolences on the passing of Carvin Malone, former Minister of Health and Social Development of the British Virgin Islands. Mr. Malone was not only a distinguished statesman but also a pleasure to work with. His collaborative spirit shone brightly during our joint efforts to combat COVID-19, where I, alongside our Health Commissioner Justa Encarnacion, had the privilege to work closely with him through the Inter Virgin Islands Council. This partnership significantly strengthened the ties between our islands, addressing shared matters of vital importance. We honor his legacy and remember his profound commitment to the wellbeing of our communities. My most heartfelt condolences go out to Mr. Malone’s family, the Virgin Islands Party, of which he was a revered former president, and to all the people of the British Virgin Islands. His loss is deeply felt by us all.”
