The Governor of the US Virgin Islands, Albert Bryan Jr., has declared a one-off additional public sector holidays in the US Virgin Islands on Monday, July 5, 2021, "because Virgin Islands Emancipation Day falls on Saturday, July 3, and the Fourth of July holiday falls on a Sunday this year".

The aforementioned declaration of a one-off public sector holiday in the US Virgin Islands, on July 5, 2021, is in addition to the list of of non-working public holidays in the US Virgin Islands for the calendar year 2021, as released late last year (2020-12-07).

The announcement of additional public sector holidays is a staple of the US Virgin Islands' calendar of non-working public holidays (2019-12-20, 2018-04-20, 2017-12-25, 2016-12-20, 2016-11-18, 2015-04-25, 2014-12-22, 2011-12-20, 2010-12-28, 2006-12-21, 2005-12-06, 2004-12-22, 2003-12-17, and 2002-12-16), though such declarations of additional public holidays in the US Virgin Islands had become more rare in the past couple of years.
