Sint Maarten's Minister of Public Health, Social Development and Labour, Richard Panneflek, has announced that the Council of Ministers has agreed to declare Monday, December 28, 2020, as a one-off public holiday in Sint Maarten, to compensate the fact that this year's Carnival Day public holiday fell during lockdown.

The aforementioned declaration of Monday, December 28, 2020, as a non-working public holiday in Sint Maarten on as compensation for last April's Carnival Day, thus amends the official list of 2020 public holidays in Sint Maarten as announced by the Sint Maarten Labour Department, early last year (2019-01-26).

Four years ago (2016-04-28), the Government of Sint Maarten had similarly decided to change the date of the upcoming annual Carnival Day non-working public holiday of Sint Maarten, but only by a few days, from April 30 to Tuesday, May 3, 2016.
