Public sector workers as well as all other government employees are to report to work on Monday, the Office of the Prime Minister said Sunday afternoon.

A release said:

“Persons who are unable to report to their usual places of work are asked to report their status to their respective managers and supervisors.

“These include the following:

“Workers who have been displaced/evacuated as a result of the ongoing explosive eruption of the La Soufriere volcano

“ Individuals who have been assigned to assist at emergency shelters or at the headquarters of the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO), and Persons who experience difficulties getting to and from their workplaces.”

The release said that all essential services remain operational, including the seaports.

The release was issued on day three of the explosive eruption of La Soufriere, which has covered the entire nation in ash, and forced the evacuation of thousands of people.

Some communities have been without water for more than 48 hours as a result of the eruption.

  1. This makes little sense. Some offices are not air-conditioned, relying on the opening of windows. Not all government building have tanks to service employee and bathroom facilities. Wet ash becomes slippery and roads be one dangerous. Let us pray there is no heavy ash fall in town tomorrow.
    This just reeks of the public service vaccination conundrum. They were hoping to use the shelter angle to use up the vaccines but the people wise up and avoided the shelters. Now the are back to square one!!

  2. With all the assistance flowing into the country now would be a good time for those in charge to see that it goes the people who need it and not be used for politics. Gonsalves, I hope this wear you out so good you will quit already. We need fresh new ideas in these times. After all this the charity coffers will be full. But we are tired of you, ‘Suefray’ too is tired of seeing you. Look how much disasters hitting the country. The universe is working against you and your political plans. But our people are resourceful despite your semi dictatorship and oppressive tactics. Hope them man stop laugh and make jokes and rid our blessed people of you. After this government has to help people better. Fix up all services people need like in other countries. What? you expect to be there for the next thirty-eight years? Wha? I don’t wish it but I’m afraid hurricane season is almost upon there, a good one with plenty thunder should pass over your head. You could give that some holy consideration like the vaccine. We will see what happens next year in society in SVG. Hit the road Ralph.

    No one mentions the shutting down of Argyle airport, the evacuation and loss of use of the specialist medical center at Georgetown. The loss of fishing as a food for the people, the loss of all crops and the need to import. The shame is the ULP regime new it was coming to this, they were aware it was going to happen yet still built follies in places that rendered them useless. They built those follies and wasted our money for political reasons.
