The Government of Ecuador has confirmed that the upcoming August 10 National Day public holiday, the Primer Grito de Independencia, would be observed on Monday, August 9, 2021 ("Este 10 de agosto no es recuperable y el feriado se pasa a lunes").
The aforementioned announcement follows similar ones maintaining previously-announced long weekend public holidays unchanged, despite the Covid19 pandemic (2021-04-28, 2021-02-02 and 2020-05-20).
Indeed, late last year, the government of Ecuador confirmed the list of 2021 public holidays, in line with previous decrees and the current legislation on public holidays (2020-11-16).
Monday, August 9, 2021, had been declared a public holiday on account of the August 10 National Day public holiday in the Suplemento Registro Oficial No.906 (2016-12-21, 2016-12-13, 2016-10-16), which amended the 2003 "Ley Orgánica de Servicio Civil y Carrera Administrativa y de Unificación y Homologación de las Remuneraciones del Sector Público" (2003-12-04), by virtue of which most Ecuadorean public holidays' day off are moved to the nearest weekend, as well as a few tweaks that Ecuadorean President, Lenín Moreno Garcés, had added since his assumption of power (2019-04-29, 2019-04-25, 2017-03-29, 2018-04-26).
