The Office of Communication of the Presidency of Haiti ("Ministère de la Communication, au nom du Gouvernement de la République") has announced that Haiti's Government had declared Tuesday, January 12, 2016, as a "day of remembrance and reflection dedicated to the memory of the victims of the earthquake of January 12, 2010", but that Tuesday, January 12, 2016, would not be a non-working public holiday in Haiti ("journée de commémoration et de réflexion, qui n'est pas fériée").

Three years ago (10-Jan-2013), and contrary to what was decreed the preceding years (11-Jan-2012 and 10-Feb-2010), a similar "day of remembrance and reflection dedicated to the memory of the victims of the earthquake of January 12, 2010" was announced, but clearly stipulated as not a non-working public holiday in Haiti.
