About these Public Holidays

The State Administration Council issued an order (No.211/2021) on the night of July 14 announcing a long public holiday from July 17th to 25th 2021.

The Myanmar regime will expand the number of public holidays during the week from two to five, in an attempt to contain the spread of COVID-19 amid a surge in infections and deaths in the country. It announced on Wednesday that July 17th to 25th 2021 will all be official public holidays.

In an order signed by its secretary, the regime’s governing body, the State Administration Council (SAC), said it had “designated the two weekdays—July 20th and July 22nd —as public holidays in order to effectively conduct the COVID-19 prevention, control and treatment activities.”

In a separate order, it also declared Qurbani Eid Day on July 21 (Wednesday) as a public holiday. Martyrs’ Day on July 19 (Monday) and Waso Full Moon Day on July 23 (Friday) were already official public holidays.
