The Communications Officer at the Deputy Governor's Office of the Government of the British Virgin Islands, Temulji Hughes, has released an announcement containing the updated list of 2021 public holidays in the British Virgin Islands, for the remainder of the year ("The public is reminded of the public holidays that will be observed for the remainder of the year").

The 2001 report of a Public Holidays Review Commission, tasked with the review of the list of annual public holidays in the British Virgin Islands, and their method of calculation, laid dormant for almost 20 years (2001-05-18), until last summer, when a new Public Holidays Review Committee was created, specifically meant to be basing itself on the recommendations of the 2001 commission (2020-07-08).

The 2020 Public Holidays Review Committee published its draft recommendations in early October 2020 (2020-10-01), and based on these recommendations, the Office of the Deputy Governor of the British Virgin Islands issued the official list of 2021 public holidays in the British Virgin Islands, in late December of last year (2020-12-18).

That amended list of 2021 public holidays was re-issued at the beginning of this year (2021-01-18), and later once again amended, by the inclusion of a different date for the new public holiday commemorating the 1949 Great March and Restoration Day (2021-02-19).
