The state of Baja California will partially close its doors Friday due to the Cinco de Mayo holiday.
State Executive Officer Rocío López said the Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla has been set in both labor agreements and state law as a holiday.
Although the celebration takes place Thursday, the holiday was moved in order to provide employees a long weekend.
López said most of the state activities, including tax collection, will be suspended.
However, emergency healthcare services and law enforcement will stay open for any emergencies. The executive officer said activities resume Monday.
