The Government of Trinidad and Tobago has announced that, under the terms of the "Public Holidays and Festivals Act", Saturday, March 31, 2018, had been declared as an additional non-working public holiday in Trinidad and Tobago, on account of the upcoming 2018 Good Friday and Shouter Baptist Liberation Day annual public holidays of Trinidad and Tobago, falling on the same date.

The Good Friday and Shouter Baptist Liberation Day annual public holidays of Trinidad and Tobago had been included in the official list of Trinidad and Tobago bank holidays and of non-working public holidays for the calendar year 2018, which was released by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago earlier this year (2018-01-06).

But, under the terms of the "Public Holidays and Festivals Act", "where a public holiday falls on a Sunday or where two holidays fall on the same day, the next following day that is not a public holiday shall be a public holiday".
