EPA Hits Pause on Plan to Reopen D.C. Headquarters Amid Virus (1)

The EPA has paused its plans toward reopening its Washington, D.C., headquarters, according to an internal email.

The email, obtained by Bloomberg Law, comes as a win for the guild representing many Environmental Protection Agency employees, which has resisted the agency’s efforts to bring them back to the office.

During a review of 14-day trend data for the national capital region, EPA experts “determined that the gating criteria to enter Phase 2 were not met,” wrote Donna Vizian, the EPA’s principal deputy assistant administrator for the Office of Mission Support.
