Montgomery County Government Will Close Tomorrow (6/18/21) in Observance of Juneteenth

Earlier today President Joe Biden signed the Juneteenth National Holiday Act. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has also declared tomorrow as a state holiday in honor of Juneteenth.

We have now been told that Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich has made the decision to close Montgomery County Government on Friday, June 18th in observance of the holiday.

Only essential employees working onsite are expected to report to work. Essential employees who are scheduled to work remotely should observe the day as a holiday and not report to work. All other non-essential employees should not report to the office or telework.

More information will be distributed when employees are sent official notification later this afternoon.


Eid Mubarak! The festival of Eid ul Fitr commemorates the end of the the Islamic month of Ramadan, during which Muslims fast during daylight hours from all food and drink—including water—and spend large portions of each night in worship & meditation.

The holiday lasts three days, and the traditional greetings are Eid Mubarak and Eid Saeed, save in Turkic traditions, where the greeting is Bayraminiz Mubarek.

“We have Muslims from each and every country imaginable here in MoCo,” says Hamza Khan, a longtime resident of Montgomery County. “Our Eid traditions are perhaps the most pluralistic & diverse in the world because of that. But we all share one thing in common: we are glad to be eating and drinking again!”

The MoCoShow wishes everyone celebrating a happy Eid ul Fitr!
