Earlier today, Chad's ministre de la Fonction publique, du Dialogue social et du Travail, Ali Mbodou Mbodoumi, issued a communiqué declaring Thursday, October 29, 2020, a the date of the upcoming Chad public holiday for the Prophet's Birthday ("à l'occasion de la fête de Maoulid An-nabi et conformément à la liste des jours fériés et chômés, la journée de jeudi 29 octobre 2020 est déclarée fériée et chômée sur l'ensemble du territoire national").

To quash any hope in the population that a bridge public holiday would be declared on Friday, October 30, 2020, to link the 2020 Prophet's Birthday public holiday with the nearby weekend, the government's communiqué goes on to state that "La journée du vendredi 30 octobre 2020 est ouvrable, informe le ministre aux travailleurs du secteur public et privé", a clarification that is often added at the end of public holidays announcements in the Chad (2020-08-10, 2020-05-23, 2019-11-26, 2019-11-08).
