The government concurred on revising the 2021 Public Holiday and Collective Leave in a bid to flatten the COVID-19 transmission rate in Indonesia.
The agreement was stipulated in the joint decree (SKB) of Religious Affairs Minister, Manpower Minister, and Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Minister No. 712 of 2021, No. 3 of 2021 on the second revision of joint decree of religious affairs minister, manpower minister, and administrative and bureaucratic reform minister No. 642 of 2020, and No. 4 of 2020 on the 2021 Public Holiday and Collective Leave.
“The government has decided to revise two public holidays and suspend one collective leave,” Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture, Muhadjir Effendy, stated.
The second revision comprises: the Islamic New Year holiday falling on Tuesday, August 10, 2021, that was revised to Wednesday, August 11, 2021; Prophet Muhammad’s birthday falling on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, that was revised to Wednesday, October 20, 2021; and the government’s suspension of the collective leave of Christmas 2021.
“Those are three points we have decided together along with three related ministries,” he remarked.
