Sources: El Nuevo Día and Puerto Rico public holidays. There are 2 public holidays, next week, in Puerto Rico: Constitution Day (Día de la Constitución del ELA) on Wednesday July 25, and Barbosa Day (Natalicio del médico anexionista José Celso Barbosa) on Friday July 27. As expected, we now have the first announcement from civil servants that the in-between day will be taken as a bridge public holiday. A few hours ago, the President of the Supreme Court, Federico Hernández Denton, announced that all tribunals and their personnel would be taking Thursday July 26 as a bridge public holiday, enabling them to be on holiday from Tuesday night July 24, until Monday morning July 30.
Analysis: Note that we can expect other administrations to either follow suit and declare a bridge public holiday, early next week, or for most of their workers to take the day off anyways. This analysis is indirectly borne out by the Dominican Republic's Board of Tourism which announced that it was extending its famous Festival Brugal del Merengue to coincide with Puerto Rico's expected 5-day holiday.
