For Public sector (ministries etc):
If Eid falls on Sunday,
Sunday to Tuesday
If Eid falls on Monday,
Sunday to Thursday

For Govt (non-Federal govt):
If Eid falls on Sunday,
Sunday to Tuesday
If Eid falls on Monday,
Sunday to Wednesday

For Private sector: (2 days only)
If Eid falls on Sunday,
Sunday to Monday
If Eid falls on Monday,
Monday to Tuesday


Most likely Eid will fall on Sunday so there you go, can plan accordingly.
