"@type": "OpeningHoursSpecification",
    "dayOfWeek": [
    "Hours": "Closed"

I get the following error:

Closed (The property Hours is not recognized by Google for an object of type OpeningHoursSpecification.)

This is how i am doing a weekday

        "@type": "OpeningHoursSpecification",
        "dayOfWeek": [
        "Hours" :"10:00 - 17:30"

Maybe i don't understand exactly your purposes, but as stated in the Schema.org/OpeningHoursSpecification documentation

The place is open if the opens property is specified, and closed otherwise.

According to this i would set only opening times by implication of closed is when not open.

PS to go into the case rised by @StephenOstermiller: to deal with exceptions like holidays there is a following standard-conform workaround:

  • The Date format, which is ISO 8601, allows setup of durations, time intervals and repeating intervals and, further, combinations of date and time.
  • These data can be implemented by validFrom / validThrough

  • How about the case where you would normally be open on Mondays but you have to specify a Monday holiday where you would be closed? – Stephen Ostermiller Sep 16 '19 at 12:52
  • so monday i open 9-5 for sunday what do i put i dont open on sundays – jibin george Sep 16 '19 at 12:55
  • @StephenOstermiller Yes, i have had such case - to get it the first time was veeeery tricky for me. Finally i've got a solution using validity (validFrom validThrough) and the date, which allows repeatable dates too. – Evgeniy Sep 16 '19 at 12:58
