Puerto Rico's Governor, Luis G. Fortuño Burset, has declared Tuesday, August 2, 2011, as a one-off non-working public sector holiday on account of the impending tropical storm Emily.
The aforementioned announcement is contained in the Memorando Especial Núm. 24-2011 announced to the media by the Oficina de Capacitación y Asesoramiento en Asuntos Laborales y de Administración de Recursos Humanos (OCALARH).
