Viya Says It Is Not Responsible for COVID-19 Test Kit Website Issues

Viya, the leading telecommunications provider in the U.S. Virgin Islands, was advised that residents are experiencing issues when ordering the COVID-19 free test kit from the federal government website at https://www.covidtests.gov/. Viya and other providers in the Virgin Islands are not blocking access to the federal government’s website.

The U.S. Postal Service network administrators have been contacted, and they have acknowledged that the issue of the website geo-blocking IP addresses affects not only the U.S. Virgin Islands but other locations in the United States.

The U.S. Postal Service is currently working on a resolution for the matter.
