Washington area federal offices will open on Friday with a two-hour delayed arrival and with unscheduled leave policy in effect, following
a week of record snow fall. Tomorrow’s forecast calls for higher, yet chilly temperatures and high winds and sun.
The decision means Washington area federal offices will open and workers should plan to arrive no more than two hours later than normal.
Employees who cannot report to work may take unscheduled leave and must
inform their supervisors of the decision, the Office of Personnel
Management said. Telework and emergency employees are expected to
report for work on time.
Monday’s President’s Day holiday will also happen as scheduled despite this week’s closings, OPM Director John Berry said earlier Thursday during a washingtonpost.com live chat.
