From OPM:

“The following message applies only to October 17, 2013

Open. Employees are expected to return for work on their next regularly scheduled work day (Thursday, October 17th for most employees), absent other instructions from their employing agencies.

Due to the enactment of a continuing resolution, Federal government operations are open. Employees are expected to return for work on their next regularly scheduled work day (Thursday, October 17th for most employees), absent other instructions from their employing agencies. Agencies are strongly encouraged to use all available workplace flexibilities to ensure a smooth transition back to work for employees (e.g. telework, work schedule flexibilities, and excused absence for hardship situations).”

From the Mayor’s office:

“Mayor Vincent C. Gray today thanked congressional leaders and the President for including, in their deal to raise the debt ceiling and reopen the federal government, a provision securing the District’s ability to spend its own local funds throughout Fiscal Year 2014 regardless of possible future federal government shutdowns this year.”

From @wmata:

“Good morning, Federal Government! Nice to have you back aboard! @Metrorailinfo has returned to the normal mix of 8 and 6-car trains. #wmata”
