numpy.is_busday(dates, weekmask='1111100', holidays=None, busdaycal=None, out=None)

Calculates which of the given dates are valid days, and which are not.

New in version 1.7.0.

Parameters :

dates : array_like of datetime64[D]

The array of dates to process.

weekmask : str or array_like of bool, optional

A seven-element array indicating which of Monday through Sunday are valid days. May be specified as a length-seven list or array, like [1,1,1,1,1,0,0]; a length-seven string, like ‘1111100’; or a string like “Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri”, made up of 3-character abbreviations for weekdays, optionally separated by white space. Valid abbreviations are: Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

holidays : array_like of datetime64[D], optional

An array of dates to consider as invalid dates. They may be specified in any order, and NaT (not-a-time) dates are ignored. This list is saved in a normalized form that is suited for fast calculations of valid days.

busdaycal : busdaycalendar, optional

A busdaycalendar object which specifies the valid days. If this parameter is provided, neither weekmask nor holidays may be provided.

out : array of bool, optional

If provided, this array is filled with the result.

Returns :

out : array of bool

An array with the same shape as dates, containing True for each valid day, and False for each invalid day.
