Bolivia's Minister of Labour, Daniel Santalla, has announced that Friday, February 28, 2014, would be observed as a continuous schedule working day (horario continuo) from 8am to 4pm so that Bolivians may begin the annual Carnival public holidays celebrations with the typical Bolivian Ch'alla on Friday night, February 28, 2014.

As per the aforementioned press release, this will apply to both the private and public sectors ("El día viernes hay horario continuo desde las ocho de la mañana hasta las cuatro de la tarde, ya que muchas de las oficinas como también algunas empresas privadas acostumbran hacer la Ch'alla").

A similar continuous day had been declared last year (2013-03-26), when Bolivia's Ministry of Labour announced that the public sector would work a continuous day on Friday, February 8, 2013, to be able to leave for the weekend at 3pm (se determinó aplicar el horario continuo para el viernes 8 de febrero, para la administración pública a nivel nacional, debiendo iniciarse la jornada de trabajo desde horas 08:00 a 15:00).
