Costa Rica's President, Luis Guillermo Solís, has issued 2 decrees declaring Thursday and Friday, October 5-6, 2017, as one-off non-working public holidays in Costa Rica, on account of the heavy rains due to tropical storm Nate.

As per the aforementioned decree, the declaration of Thursday and Friday, October 5-6, 2017, as one-off non-working public holidays in Costa Rica, on account of tropical storm Nate, is limited to the public sector, as the government has no authority to declare one-off non-working public holidays in Costa Rica for the private sector, though President Solís encourages the private sector to follow suit, partially at least, as was the case last year, when Costa Rica's President issued a decree declaring Thursday and Friday, November 24 and 25, 2016, as one-off non-working public holidays in Costa Rica, on account of the impending arrival of tropical storm Otto.
