Costa Rica's Minister of of the Interior, Gustavo Mata, and departing President, Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera, have signed a decree declaring Tuesday, May 8, 2018, as a one-off non-working public sector holiday in Costa Rica, on account of the upcoming inauguration of president-elect Carlos Alvarado Quesada.

Four years ago (2014-04-29), Costa Rica's then Minister of Labour, Olman Segura, has similarly announced that Thursday, May 8, 2014, had been declared as another one-off non-working public sector holiday in Costa Rica, on account of the upcoming inauguration of then president-elect Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera. That one-off non-working public holiday in Costa Rica had also been limited to the public sector ("La decisión no incluye a los trabajadores del sector privado").
