ST. THOMAS — Individuals applying for a health card on St. Thomas encountered some administrative chaos on Monday, but officials with the V.I. Health Department said those technical problems will be resolved by this afternoon.

A video posted to social media Monday showed an office filled with frustrated applicants and Health Department employees apparently stymied in their efforts to issue health cards, a necessary requirement for those who work in the restaurant, child care, and beauty industries in the territory.
