Coronavirus Public Holiday in Bangladesh in 2020

The government of Bangladesh has declared holidays from Thursday March 26th to Saturday April 4th to prevent the transmission of coronavirus.

Cabinet secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam said the government has announced general holidays for five days from March 29th to April 2nd as March 26th is already a holiday for Independence Day and April 3rd and 4th are weekly holidays.

Banks will remain open during this time to facilitate the financial transaction for their clients.

According to a top official of Bangladesh Bank, banks will keep their operation on from 10am to 1:30pm during the government-declared 10-day holiday.

Coronavirus Public Holiday

Some countries will use Public holidays to attempt to tackle the Coronavirus Outbreak.

In these countries, we would expect that those who can work from home, will do so. 

Many countries have called for lockdowns and for citizens to stay home as much as possible. If that happens in a country, it is not a public holiday - mainly as that would give holiday pay rights in many places.

Also in most countries, banks are still operating as they are essential services.

Note that cancellations of normal public holidays have been few so far. This means that if you are working with someone who is working from home, be aware that they will still be observing any of the normal public holidays in their location.
