PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY GOVERNMENT WILL CLOSE TO THE PUBLIC TOMORROW, TUESDAY, JANUARY 4, 2022 DUE TO WINTER WEATHER; COUNTY URGES RESIDENTS TO STAY OFF THE ROADWAYS

 

LARGO, MD – Prince George’s County government will close to the public tomorrow, Tuesday, January 4, 2022 due to winter weather, to include today’s significant snowfall and the anticipated refreeze to occur overnight. Additionally, the County urges all residents to stay off of the roadways overnight and tomorrow.

“We received a significant snowfall today and one of the main obstacles that our public works and emergency personnel experienced was a large number of abandoned and stranded vehicles,” said County Executive Angela Alsobrooks. “As the temperatures drop through the night, we are expecting dangerous conditions on the roadways tonight and tomorrow. We ask all residents to stay home so that our road crews can plow and treat the roads safely.”

Additionally, the County is working to clear 311 downed trees across Prince George’s.

Non-essential employees authorized to telework during inclement weather must report for telework at their normal time, however, liberal leave is in effect for those employees. Essential employees must report to work on-time as directed by their agency; non-telework, non-essential employees will be on administrative leave.
