Montgomery County Government Will Remain Open Today; Liberal Leave for Non-Essential Employees

For Immediate Release: Monday, January 8, 2018

Montgomery County Government offices and departments will remain OPEN today according to their normal operating schedules with optional LIBERAL LEAVE for non-essential employees effective at 11 a.m. Essential employees must work their regular hours and report as scheduled.

All scheduled Montgomery County Recreation Department programs, classes and Senior Centers will close at 2 p.m. today due to the inclement weather. 

Updated: 2:20 p.m.: Public drop-off at the Shady Grove Transfer Station Route 355 entrance is closed for the remainder of the day.

Updated: 4:28 p.m.: Montgomery County Public Libraries Potomac and Rockville Memorial branches will close at 6 p.m. All other branches are expected to be open regularly scheduled hours, although some may be offering limited service.  Customers should call their local branches for more information.

Non-essential Montgomery County employees must notify their supervisors of their intent to use appropriate leave (see MCtime Resources – Liberal Leave Guidance) without prior supervisory approval. Telework-approved employees who are regularly scheduled to perform telework must be prepared to work, take leave, or a combination of both. Telework-approved employees not scheduled to telework may request unscheduled telework from their supervisor for all or, in combination with leave, part of the work day.
