The Chief of Staff of the Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Lionel Hurst, has confirmed rumours that the state funeral for former Prime Minister, Lester Bryant Bird, would take place on Thursday, August 26, 2021, and that that date would be declared as a national public holiday in Antigua and Barbuda.

The aforementioned declaration of Thursday, August 26, 2021, as a public holiday in Antigua and Barbuda, thus amends the list of 2021 public holidays as released by the Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Legal Affairs of Antigua and Barbuda, earlier this year (2021-01-18).
