Font size: [A] [A] [A]

Gov. John deJongh Jr. signed a proclamation that provides administrative leave for government employees to celebrate the 61st anniversary of the St. Croix Crucian Christmas Carnival.

Noting that the Christmas holiday season is one of merriment, joy and gathering of family and friends to enjoy and pass on the many cultural traditions of the festive occasion, deJongh granted leave on days of major festivities associated with the annual festival.

DeJongh said he has authorized commissioners and agency heads to grant administrative leave to non-essential employees working in the government as follows:

- Dec. 24: 1 to 5 p.m., administrative leave territory-wide.

- Dec. 31: 1 to 5 p.m., administrative leave territory-wide.

- Jan. 2: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., administrative leave for St. Croix only.

- Jan. 3: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., administrative leave territory-wide.
