The Georgian government has declared January 1-10, 2022, inclusively, as public holidays in Georgia, following the confirmation of 2 dozen cases of the Omicron variant.

Recall that, earlier this year (2021-04-10), an interagency commission led by Georgian Prime Minister, Irakli Garibashvili, had declared the period of May 4-11, 2021, inclusively, as additional non-working public holidays to curb the possible spread of Covid-19, which, combined with annual public holidays, meant a continuous period of public holidays in Georgia, from May 1-12, 2021, inclusively.

As per the aforementioned decision, "the decision applies to public institutions, and it is up to the private sector whether or not to observe the holiday".
