Mauritius Declares January 3 A Public Holiday In 2022

Mauritius' Prime Minister, Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, has announced Monday, January 3, 2022, would be a one-off non-working public holiday in Mauritius, due to the annual January 1st and 2nd public holidays both falling on the weekend.

The declaration of Monday, January 3, 2022, as a public holiday in Mauritius thus amends the previously-released list of 2022 Mauritius public holidays, as released by the Mauritius Cabinet of Ministers, late last spring (2021-06-18).

Monday, January 3, 2011, had been declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Mauritius (2010-06-24), when then Prime Minister Ramgoolam similarly realized that the annual public holidays of January 1 and 2 both fell on a weekend in 2011.

However, Mauritius' government did not declare Tuesday, January 3, 2012, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Mauritius, as only January 1st fell on a weekend (2011-12-24).

The year 2017 started on the same weekday as 2012, and Mauritius' government did not declare Tuesday, January 3, 2017, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Mauritius either (2016-12-03).
