Haiti to Remain on Eastern Standard Time All Year
Haiti has announced they will not observe Daylight Saving Time this year, but will instead remain on Eastern Standard Time (EST).
They were originally going to change their clocks on Sunday, March 13, 2016, which would put them in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), but since that is no longer happening there will be no change at all. The announcement was made just 2 days prior to the March 13 change.
It is unknown whether or not this will be a temporary or permanent change.
Haiti has made changes like this a number of times in the past. From 2012 to 2015, the country synced their clocks with the United States' Eastern Time Zone, which meant switching to EDT during Daylight Saving.
