The St. Croix Island Health Department is responsible for monitoring public health, and it may operate at the United States Virgin Islands, St. Croix Island, or local level. In some areas, Health Departments are also responsible for maintaining St. Croix Island vital records, including documents related to birth such as birth certificates. These St. Croix Island public records, which act as legal proof of birth and citizenship, list the baby's name, date of birth, time of birth, and the location, as well as personal information about the parents. Birth certificates may be required to apply for an United States Virgin Islands State driver's license or passport, receive a Social Security number, or apply for government services, and they can also be useful for St. Croix Island genealogical research. Health Departments may provide online access to their birth records.
