What's Closed, Open on President's Day

Not sure what services are operating today? Check out the listing below.


Although commonly known as Presidents Day, the Monday holiday is still legally Washington's Birthday.

The holiday was shifted from Feb. 22 to the third Monday in February 1971 under the terms of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968. Because the holiday falls between Feb. 15 and 21 it can never fall on the actual anniversary of Washington's birth in 1732.

The term Presidents Day began being popularized in the 1980s, when retailers combined sales formerly held in conjunction with Washington and Abraham Lincoln's birthdays.

Here's what's open and closed locally:

Government Offices: All federal, state, county and city offices, courts, libraries and animal shelters are closed.

Mail Delivery: The Postal Service will not deliver mail.

LVUSD Schools: Schools are closed.

Transit: Buses and subway services in Los Angeles will run on a regular schedule. Metrolink trains will be running.

Banks: Banks are closed.

Trash Pick-Up: Trash will be picked up on a regular schedule.

Retail: Most malls and supermarkets will be open.
