Mauritius' government has declared Monday, September 9, 2019, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Mauritius, on account of the visit of Pope Francis to the island.

The aforementioned announcement that Monday, September 9, 2019, had been declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Mauritius ("Our country will be blessed this year with the visit of the Pope [...] so that we can as a nation, welcome His Holiness to our country"), was made by Mauritius' Prime Minister and minister of Finance, Pravind Jugnauth, and thus amends the 2019 list of official non-working public holidays in Mauritius, as announced, last year (2018-05-26), as we had surmised might happen, a few months ago (2019-04-19).
