Brief: Holiday Leave for Government Employees

Gov. John deJongh Jr. issued a proclamation this week giving non-essential government workers territory-wide the day off Jan. 2, and St. Croix government workers Jan. 4 off for the Crucian Christmas Festival.

On Jan. 4, St. Croix will celebrate the Festival J’ouvert and the Food, Arts and Craft Fair
The administrative leave granted on January 2 and January 4 does not apply to essential employees, employees on a regular or rotating shift, and employees on annual or sick leave.

"The granting of leave on these two days encourages greater participation in the annual food fair and enhances the celebration of the Christmas Festival by all residents and visitors," deJongh said in a statement.

Administrative leave is not required for December 26, or January 6, ten days later, as both days are legal holidays in the U.S. Virgin Islands, according to Government House.
