Veterans Day is a federal holiday observed annually on November 11.

It is intended to recognize and honor all former, living military veterans for their service to our country. (Memorial Day honors those who died while serving. Armed Forces Day honors those currently serving.)

Locally, city and county services and facilities that are not currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic; such as rec centers, museums, libraries and the El Paso Zoo, will be closed for the day on Wednesday, as will most area school districts. All will resume their regular schedule on Thursday.

If you’re planning on shopping or dining out, most stores, restaurants, shopping centers, and malls not impacted by the outbreak will remain open. However, some may be operating on holiday schedule with limited or reduced hours of operation. Call to confirm before heading out.
