Federal offices in the Washington region will remain closed on Monday, the Office of Personnel Management announced Sunday evening.
Emergency and telework-ready employees must follow their agencies' individual policies regarding work, OPM said.
The move came as the national capital region continued to dig out from a massive winter storm over the weekend. Earlier Sunday, the Washington Metro system announced that trains and buses would operate on a limited schedule Monday.
"Non-emergency employees will be granted excused absence (administrative leave) for the number of hours they were scheduled to work," OPM said, "unless they are:
- required to telework,
- on official travel outside of the Washington, DC area,
- on pre-approved leave (including leave without pay), or
- on an alternative work schedule (AWS) day off."
