The Guam Department of Labor is hiring temporary workers to help with humanitarian and clean-up efforts related to COVID-19, while further preventing the spread of the virus.

Funded by the National Dislocated Worker Grant, the program is seeking individuals who have been laid off or furloughed from their job as a direct result of COVID-19.

“We need people with positive attitudes who are eager to learn and help us sanitize quarantine sites, homeless shelters and isolation centers,” said project manager Catrina Contreras. “With this federal grant we can all work together to improve and change our situations.”

There are 20 openings for maintenance workers and housekeepers for six-month terms. Job duties include assisting with:

  • ●  Cleaning and sanitizing rooms, restrooms and hallways.
  • ●  Temperature screening.
  • ●  Distributing supplies, and receiving and restocking as needed.
  • ●  Physical distancing requirements.

“These frontline positions are imperative to us getting through this public health emergency,” said Labor Director David Dell’Isola. “This is also a great opportunity for people to earn a decent wage while helping our community.”
