This day is designated a DAY FOR WORSHIP.

This means that according to the text of scripture, rules of a recognised governing body, or long-established custom of a particular religion, followers consider themselves expected to participate in worship, usually gathered together with other followers of their faith. Different religions have different views on whether and when exceptions can be made, and whether a religious body can excuse a particular individual from their obligations.

Unless the day is ALSO designated a DAY OF REST, it is NOT a day on which followers of the religion are required to rest from work. Nevertheless, the logistical issues of being able to travel to attend a place of worship may impact the believer's working arrangements, especially if they work shifts which cover evenings, early mornings weekends or public holidays, and especially when the adherent's nearest place of a worship is a considerable distance away.
