For Immediate Release: Thursday, January 4, 2018

Montgomery County Government offices and departments are OPEN according to their normal operating schedules with optional LIBERAL LEAVE for non-essential employees. Essential employees must report as scheduled.

County Senior Centers are closed. All scheduled programs and activities in County recreation facilities are cancelled. Recreation facilities will be open for drop in use only.
