Coronavirus (COVID-19)

UPDATE

"Sounds of the Virgin Isles"

This annual fundraising event is to raise awareness and funding to the music and arts programs in the public schools. Through CFVI you can continue to donate.

The first quarter of 2020 presented a major threat not only to the Territory; Coronavirus COVID-19, a pandemic that was plaguing the entire world. Senators would go into Emergency Session to move legislation that would keep the Virgin Islands government afloat. Senators encouraged residents to stay in their homes and practice social distancing, but with the lack of enforcement Senator Sarauw called on the Governor to implement a shelter in place.

In the 4th quarter, the Committee on Rules and Judiciary kicked it into overdrive as over 46 board nominees and various bills were vetted and voted upon before being heard in Legislative Session for final approval. Senators also faced the ongoing WAPA crisis as issues were investigated in the Committee of the Whole and in December when Emergency Session was called by the Governor to address an immediate $6 million dollars payment to VITOL.
