Maaga long weekend! Duterte declares June 11, 2020 a non-working day in Rizal
Residents of Rizal will enjoy their long weekend a day earlier with President Rodrigo Duterte’s declaration of June 11 as a special, non-working day in the province.
Since the following day, June 12, is Independence Day, residents of Rizal will have a four-day weekend.
Antipolo Mayor Andeng Ynares shared a copy of Proclamation No. 954 formalizing the declaration of the local holiday on Facebook.
The proclamation, signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea, stated that residents of Rizal should be given the chance to celebrate the province’s foundation day “with appropriate ceremonies, subject to community quarantine, social distancing and other public health measures.”
June 11, 2020 marks Rizal’s 119th founding anniversary.
