The Minister of Culture Olivia Grange, says this year’s Labour Day will be celebrated under the theme, “Labour at Home”.
Minister Grange said the theme is in keeping with “the need for social distancing and the ban on large gatherings as we fight the spread of COVID-19”.
“Jamaicans will be asked to use Labour Day to clean up, paint up and fix up their own home environment,” Grange said.
However, she noted that the National Workers’ Week and Labour Day Committee is giving consideration to having national and parish projects which can be implemented without putting anyone’s health at risk or breaching the Disaster Risk Management Regulations.
Labour Day will be observed on Monday, May 25 as the culmination of Workers’ Week from May 17 to 25
