Federal Government Closes Offices In D.C.Area For Monday

Play associated audio

Federal agencies in the Washington, D.C., area will be closed Monday as the region continues to dig out from a record-breaking snowstorm.

Non-emergency employees will be granted excused absences, while employees who telecommute may be expected to work from home. Emergency employees will be expected to report.

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management made the announcement Sunday afternoon saying the decision was made for safety reasons.

The office reported earlier this month that the government loses about $100 million in productivity and opportunity costs every time it closes its D.C.-area offices.
