Virgin Islands Housing Authority Offices Closed Friday For Thanksgiving
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Following Governor Albert Bryan, Jr.’s proclamation recognizing Friday, November 27th as “A Day of Family, Reflection and Prayer,” the Virgin Islands Housing Authority (VIHA) has granted administrative leave to its non-essential employees.
VIHA’s central office and public housing management offices will be closed in the St. Thomas and St. Croix districts, resuming normal hours of operation on Monday, November 30th.
“While Thanksgiving is known for feasting and football, it is also a time when we humbly reflect upon all our blessings and extend ourselves to give to those that are less fortunate,” Executive Director Robert Graham wrote in an internal memo announcing the holiday schedule.
“During this pandemic, we must recognize its many challenges for VIHA residents as well as staff,” Graham continued. “We hope you have an enjoyable long-holiday weekend with your friends and loved ones. Happy Thanksgiving to all.”
