Due to power outages affecting the entire metro region, Prince George's County government and the federal government are allowing employees to take liberal leave Monday.
The commute Monday morning may be harder than average with power outages, so offices in both Prince George's County and the federal government are allowing some employees to choose whether they wish to take the trek into work. According to a release from Prince George's County, non-essential government employees can take liberal leave Monday, while according to an alert from the county, federal agencies in DC are also allowing employees to take unscheduled leave or unscheduled telework in the morning.
