The Banco Popular Dominicano is sponsoring all-day celebrations in tribute to Our Lady of High Grace Day (Día de la Virgen de la Altagracia) on Thursday, 21 January 2021. The day is a religious holiday honoring the named protector of the Dominican people.

This year, a 24-hour celebration will be televised and streamed online. There will not be in-person participation of the general public at the Basilica Nuestra Señora de la Altagracia, the largest church in the Dominican Republic. The church is located in Higuey, capital of the province of La Altagracia, best known for its Punta Cana resorts district to the east.

Starting right after midnight on 21 January, a series of tributes will be televised from the Basilica. This is a production by Edilenia Tactuk, best known for major shows including the Casandra Awards. The performances can be followed on YouTube...

Any change to the curfew hours on Thursday due to the holiday?

Doesn't the current 2 week span expire this coming Sunday, the 24th? Given that's true and there's been no announcement to the contrary, I would assume the curfew stands as is for the holiday tomorrow. We hopefully will get an announcement tomorrow or Friday for the following 2 weeks.

The curfew decree says that the curfew starts at 12:00 noon on Saturdays, Sundays, and HOLIDAYS.
Bet a lot of people think it's 5pm today ( and also Monday).

Today and next Monday are exceptions. Curfew states at 5 pm both days just like a regular weekday.
