'Manage your money very, very wisely'

'Manage your money very, very wisely'

Minister for Natural Resources, Labour and Immigration, Honourable Vincent O. Wheatley (R9) has issued a call to persons in the Territory to be cautious when spending money in this COVID-19 era.

Speaking via a social media post on Sunday, September 6, 2020, Honourable Wheatley said many who are employed are ‘lucky’.

“Manage your money very, very wisely. Make sure you save a portion and buy only what is necessary. Cut down on expenses, for example, your phone bills, water usage, electricity,” he pointed out.

Honourable Wheatley also called for persons to ‘as much as possible’ contribute to the local economy before ‘looking elsewhere.’

He continued: “For those who are not working but will receive stimulus cheques throughout the next few weeks, this also applies to you.”


Minister for Natural Resources, Labour and Immigration, Hon Vincent O. Wheatley (R9) has encouraged the Virgin Islands to eat as healthy as possible, and get regular exercise to boost their immune system against COVID-19.


Boost immune system


“Eat as healthy as possible, and get regular exercise. A healthy immune system is a powerful tool as there is not yet a vaccine for COVID-19, we are going to have to live and work with it. These three simple things will go a long way to ride out the destructive COVID-19 wave,” Honourable Wheatley remarked.

The minister said residents of his District and the rest of the Territory can expect frequent interactive sessions from him.

The topics will be based on issues affecting residents and will be posted on social media, he added.
