Mr. Holness was speaking at today’s launch of Worker’s Week and Labour Day at the Office of the Prime Minister on Hope Road.

Workers week will be held under the theme “For Health’s Sake…Keep it Clean” and commences on May 15 and will end on Labour Day May 23.

The Prime Minister says focus will be placed on Pormore in St. Catherine given that the majority of Zika cases confirmed in Jamaica are located there.
