Yesterday, questioned in the Legislative Yuan as to whether he had considered suspending the next Labor Day holiday, Taiwanese Prime Minister, Su Tseng-Chang, stated that this possibility has not yet been considered, but that it would depend on the changes observed in the pattern of infections by COVID-19.

The aforementioned questioning came about as the Taiwanese public was observed not to respect social distancing, during the recent bridge public holidays that ran from April 2-5, 2020 (2020-03-13).

Last year (2019-05-01), the Directorate General of Personnel Administration had released its official annual calendar of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan for the upcoming calendar year 2020, and this list of Taiwanese public holidays was confirmed the following autumn, when the General Administration of Personnel Administration of Taiwan promulgated the list of 2020 public holidays in Taiwan (2019-10-31).
