The Office of Personnel Management has decided to close the federal government in the Washington, D.C. area for Monday.

With the Washington Metro system running only underground and many side streets in the neighborhoods yet to be plowed, OPM decided it was best to keep federal employees off the road for one more day.

OPM’s decision to close the D.C.-area government follows that of  every school system and most local governments to close on Monday.

The Washington metro region received  anywhere from  17 to 30 inches of snow.

The Baltimore Federal Executive Board also is recommending federal agencies close on Monday.

The Newark, N.J.FEB decided  on recommending on a two-hour delay for federal employees in that region and unscheduled telework.

The Philadelphia FEB decided last night to recommend at 2-hour late arrival for employees in that region.

OPM let federal employees in the D.C. area leave four hours early or by 12 p.m. on Friday ahead of the snow storm.
