Bolivia's Ministry of Labour has issued a communiqué announcing the upcoming Corpus Christi public holiday, on June 11, 2020, would be a non-working public holiday for both the private and public sectors ("El Ministerio de Trabajo, Empleo y Previsión Social a través de la Dirección General de Trabajo, Higiene y Seguridad Ocupacional en cumplimiento a lo dispuesto por el Decreto Supremo 2750 de 1 de mayo de 2016, recuerda a la ciudadanía en general; que el día jueves 11 de junio del presente año, se constituye en feriado nacional de Corpus Cristi con suspensión de actividades públicas y privadas en todo el territorio nacional").

The mention that upcoming Bolivian non-working public holidays apply to all sectors of the economy, is common (2020-02-19, 2018-02-09, 2017-02-24, 2017-01-06, 2016-10-26, 2016-08-02, 2016-05-25, 2016-01-14, 2015-01-15, 2013-01-21, 2012-01-18, 2012-01-05 and 2011-01-13).

The Bolivian Corpus Christi annual public holiday was rumored to be on the way out in the past (2009-04-08 and 2007-06-06), but keeps on being reaffirmed every year (2019-06-18, 2018-05-30, 2016-05-25, 2015-06-02, 2014-06-17, 2013-05-29, 2012-06-05, 2011-06-06, 2010-01-29 and 2009-06-09).
