Providing for the Closing of Executive
                Departments and Agencies of the Federal Government on
                December 24, 2019
                By the authority vested in me as President by the
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of
                America, it is hereby ordered as follows:
                Section 1. All executive departments and agencies of
                the Federal Government shall be closed and their
                employees excused from duty on Tuesday, December 24,
                2019, the day before Christmas Day.
                Sec. 2. The heads of executive departments and agencies
                may determine that certain offices and installations of
                their organizations, or parts thereof, must remain open
                and that certain employees must report for duty on
                December 24, 2019, for reasons of national security,
                defense, or other public need.
                Sec. 3. December 24, 2019, shall be considered as
                falling within the scope of Executive Order 11582 of
                February 11, 1971, and of 5 U.S.C. 5546 and 6103(b) and
                other similar statutes insofar as they relate to the
                pay and leave of employees of the United States.
                Sec. 4. The Director of the Office of Personnel
                Management shall take such actions as may be necessary
                to implement this order.
                Sec. 5. General Provisions. (a) This order shall be
                implemented consistent with applicable law and subject
                to the availability of appropriations.
                    (b) Nothing in this order shall be construed to
                impair or otherwise affect:
(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or
the head thereof; or
(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget

                    (c) This order is not intended to, and does not,
                create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural,
                enforceable at law or in equity by any party against
                the United States, its departments, agencies, or
                entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any
                other person.
