Dry days are days on which the government forbids the sale of alcohol in liquor shops, clubs, or bars. These days usually mark a gazetted holiday.

Furthermore, this is the first time that the government has taken such a decision. Previously, only liquor shops were closed on dry days, but bars and restaurants were still allowed to serve liquor.
