St. Thomas 𑁋 All around the country and around the world, teachers and other professionals have begun working remotely to combat the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus — also known as COVID-19. Governor Albert Bryan Jr. has postponed Carnival in St. Thomas indefinitely and has closed schools on all three islands to limit the spread of the highly contagious virus.
A number of elected officials in the territory and public agencies have taken similar measures as the federal government works to limit the spread and economic impact of COVID-19.
The Centers for Disease Control recommends social distancing to keep the elderly and people with weaker immune systems from contracting coronavirus. The Mint Team completes nearly 100% of stories, projects, and community initiatives remotely.
So today, State of the Territory News and its parent organization Mint & Company will begin sharing our conference call tools with teachers in the territory — free of charge!
